TENDER – “Go Steady”

Dance Yourself Clean – “Karma”

It may have been a couple years since we last covered them here, but Dance Yourself Clean is back on our radar with "Karma." Initially beginning as an indie dance party in Seattle, it has grown up to release original music and remixes, but retains the dance party...

Rose Hotel – “King and a Pawn”

Atlanta based Jordan Reynolds is Rose Hotel and her chess-flavored track "King and a Pawn" is her latest single. I have a feeling she isn't literally talking about a thrilling game of chess, and probably using chess as a lens through which to examine a relationship......

Boy Ferguson – “Grown Man”

Eliza & The Delusionals – “Falling For You”

Great Klons – “Twilight Gardener”

The newest from Great Klons is "Twilight Gardener." The band is band helmed by Scott Hesel as a solo effort, but certainly doesn't sacrifice any sound. Hesel is almost certainly a child of the 90's and he's got the chops to show it; the guitar feedback and...

Nolo the Slayer – Bottega

There’s a funny story behind the way Buffalo rapper, Nolo the Slayer got his name. Early on in his music career, while he was going under the name Nolo, he randomly decided to change his Instagram handle to “@nolotheslayer.” On his first official feature, the artist...

Turnup and GRXZZ – Racin

Mark of Fatality – Last Breath Under One Thousand Stars

The intro track off of Erie metallic hardcore band, Mark of Fatality’s debut studio EP, Last Breath Under One Thousand Stars, starts with an air of reverence. A dramatic synth part builds while a speaker says things like “This war was never about good and evil,”...

Wife and Kids – Magnesium

Wife and Kids, a newer name in the scene (with some familar faces), have been gaining traction with their candid alt-folk balladry and sweet sense of melody. The duo is composed of Alex Behrens and Joe Morganti (also in SPACED and gas station.) and a quick stream or...

Bromsen – Brothers in Mind

Bromsen is a Berlin-based duo composed of two brothers, Richard and Karlo Bromsen. These bros have been performing music together since the mid aughts - like a phoenix, their love for music reignited and rose from the ashes of their previous endeavors. Brothers in...

Flamy Grant – “S.P.R.K.L.”

Just in time for pride month, songwriter and acclaimed drag queen Flamy Grant hits us with the divine pop-funk of "S.P.R.K.L." Full of uplifting messages and anchored by a fun funky vibe reminiscent of Bruno Mars or The Bee Gees, "S.P.R.K.L." urges us to be our true...

Snoozer – “Love’s Permission”

Based out of Pennsylvania, Snoozer (aka SNZR) is brother/brother duo Mike and Tom Kelly, and "Love's Permission" is their latest. Chock full of that excellent guitar "phuzz," you're treated to a solid three-plus minutes of delightfully rambling shoegaze. Understated...

About Buffablog

buffaBLOG is a weblog (in recent, common parlance, “blog”) based in Buffalo, New York. Hence, the completely unexpected and creatively daring name of this website. We write about music. Buffalo music, primarily. National and international music, secondarily. Hypothetical and imaginary music, tertiarily. We cover all of the customary views: previews, reviews, interviews, overviews, purviews.

We’ll keep you suitably well-informed about recently released music and upcoming shows in the Buffalo area by local and national acts.

Your friends will say, “Hey how did you find out about that?” and you will say, “Oh, I just saw it on the Internet,” but by “the Internet,” you will (probably) mean buffaBLOG.

The Gold Watch – “What Do I Do”

The Gold Watch is a project by Spencer Pope and "What Do I Do" is their latest single released from their album Missing. Right off the bat, I'm hooked by the heavy synth presence that sticks with you throughout the track. The rest of the 3:43 is chill vibes all the...

Nick Kivlen of Sunflower Bean

You probably wouldn't wholly believe me if I told you that Sunflower Bean, based out of Brooklyn, NY, has existed for a measly two-years-and-some-change and that all three members have either just broken into their 20's or are about to cross that landmark threshold...

Intrepid Travelers

If you’re familiar with Intrepid Travelers, you probably know Jerry or have at least unknowingly been exposed to his presence. Jerry, a stuffed rainbow-striped monkey, functions as an unofficial mascot and source of spirited inspiration for the band. When I ask them...

The Wombats

It was eight years ago the Wombats burst onto the scene, just fresh-faced youngsters at the time armed with roaring guitars, hooks galore, and a cheeky sense of humor to them. Since then, the band's sound and popularity have only grown, with the group experimenting...
