Stinkus – “Falling in Love”

"Falling in Love" is the latest from Tyler Thompson, known by his stage name Stinkus, and the first follow-up after his earlier 2024 album that we reviewed here. Musically, this song is so unbelievably relaxing and as you may have guessed...very much a love song....

CATBEAR – “Rush”

UK based Zoe and Sarah, the brains behind the outfit known as CATBEAR, bring us their latest track "Rush." Gotta say, I was digging this track right off the bat with the strong synth and drum intro that really both drive this track forward with a...

make yourself at home – “High”

The latest single from make yourself at home is "High." While we weren't able to find out a lot about the band, we still enjoy what this Nashville quartet is creating. The track itself is noisy, yet surprisingly subdued (if that makes sense), falling somewhere between...

Restroyer. – Restroyer.

When thinking of Salt Lake City, what typically pops into your mind? The 2002 Olympics? Great big salty... lakes? At any rate, punk rock wasn't my first thought (and it probably isn't yours either)... That may change, however, with a listen to the new album from...

Siddo. Romantic Rehab

Buffalo indie-punk phenomenon, Starjuice, have been making a name for themselves on many o’ local bills as well as a recent tour across the country.  Despite their busy gig schedule and multiple releases under their belt, lead singer Sidney Flanigan has been releasing...

Catch the Ghost – Midnight Naps in Cemeteries

Catch The Ghost is Buffalo’s first phantom-themed emo-punk band. That’s right, it's more than just a name - the group’s latest project Midnight Naps in Cemeteries takes haunting personal issues, whether that be vices, fears, anxiety, or people we hate, and compares...

bigfish – “Matchstick Man”

"Matchstick Man" is one letter away from Matchstick Men, the 2003 Nicholas Cage helmed black comedy, but more importantly, is the latest single from bigfish. This is off of their Punchlines EP and leans more to the "alt" side of their country alt-rock persona. I'm...

Strawflower – “Indigo”

Strawflower is a four piece from LA and "Indigo" is the latest single from their debut full length, Greetings from the Stardust Motel. Describing themselves as "surf rock and psychedelic pop" immediately intrigued me, and the guitar intro hooked right off the start....

Extra Space – Green Season

Extra Space is one of those literal and figurative band names - the Brooklyn-based duo of Joey Puleio and Chris Kyle got together to de-clutter and re-situate their shared practice space. Lo and behold, when two musicians get together in a room with common goal, you...

Shady Cove – “Passenger”

Portland based indie band Shady Cove, made up of Sarah Rose, Sarah Nienaber, and recent addition at drums Devon Shirley. "Passenger" is their latest track and damn it gave me a hankerin' for the PNW. Soothing as fuck, I definitely felt myself floating away with the...

VANDALISBIN – “Bottle of Wisdom”

"Bottle of Wisdom" is the latest from German based musician VANDALISBIN, real name Helena Niederstraßer. I couldn't find find much, but she initially started as a street artist and has since gone on to do a lot after post-secondary school -including theater and music...

Madge – “Shiversucker”

I literally had no idea what "Shiversucker" was going to be about before I popped it on and I still don't, but I love it. Madge is a nonbinary artist originally hailing from Utah and, if you listen to the track, most assuredly an ex-Mormon. This track is straight up...

NInajirachi x BRUX – “How Could U”

"How Could U" is the newest collab between Ninajirachi "How Could U"and BRUX, two women very much in their prime musically. While we don't get a whole lot of EDM tracks when we hear one we like, we can't help but share it with you! Ninajirachi, aka Nina Wilson, is...

Paper Citizen – “American Song”

"American Song" is the latest from Singaporean transplant Claire Gohst, also known as Paper Citizen. Kicked out of her home at 17 after coming out as gay, Gohst worked her way up through the Singapore music scene until she decided to take the leap to Berklee College...

Soot Sprite – “I Went Swimming”

Soot Sprite is both an indie group from the UK and the most unappealing Sprite flavor I've ever heard of... Oh, and the former has released a new track "I Went Swimming." Describing themselves as “straddling dream pop and shoegaze, a little melancholy and a little...

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.

"White Pigeon" is the latest from CHOO CHOO, a three piece out of Brooklyn and "New York City's #1 train themed rock band." Written around a lyric singer Erica Enriquez thought of: "...I wonder if the white pigeon thinks it’s a dove, guess I’ll keep trying, hoping...

the niagara river cordially invites you to complain to the creators 🙂 Q:WHY DID THE NIAGARA RIVER INITIALLY FORM AND WHAT IS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THIS COLLABORATION(ERROR): We’ve become close friends over many years while playing music in similar circles, 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...

The Naturalists

And to start your weekend off in a good way, we present to you the next installment of buffaBLOG Sessions. This time around, with the Naturalists. Craig Perno heads the band with twin brother Travis on the drums, accompanied by bassist Zach Russel. They’ve amassed a...

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...
