SZEGO MUSIC – “More Lst Thn This”

Swedish multimedia guru Andreas Szego is the brains behind SZEGO MUSIC and their latest single is "More Lst Thn This." It's an astoundingly bold production that has a lot of threads going on. I couldn't find out much about the lyrics; seemingly Swedish chanting. It...

rincs – “Dingbat”

"Dingbat" is the latest from LA duo (or quartet now? unclear) rincs, and it's quite the banger. While it's been a minute since we've written about rincs, doesn't mean there's any love lost! We last heard from them in 2022 and 2020, and it looks like they're still on...

april june – “starstruck”

"starstruck" is the latest from Madrid artist april june - ironically from their EP released in May. Piano and acoustic guitar mesh together well with the lyrics that take on a darker tone (both melodically and lyrically) as it pays homage to the 1993 film "True...

Jesse & the Spirit – a

Buffalo to NYC transplant, Jesse James’ experimental project Jesse & the Spirit is back with a new single titled “a” set to release on April 26th. Their Bandcamp bio breaks down Jesse & the Spirit’s sound well: With collaboration from an unexplainable presence...

the niagara river – complain to the creators

This just in, naming yourself after a well-known local landmark may be a cheatcode for getting people to check out your experimental electronic project. You'd have to ask Buffalo-Brooklyn ambient duo, the niagara river if that's a legit strategy. The two musicians,...

Luno J and Neftali – The Dramatic

Rapper Neftali and producer Luno J have an intriguing history in the local music scene, prior to releasing their recent six-song collaborative project, The Dramatic. Neftali, who started in the scene seven years ago, was a member within the now defunct alternative...

Interview with the niagara river

Club 8 – “Free Falling”

Club 8, a band we've covered extensively ("Sunny," "Just Like Heaven," and "Daylight") brings us their latest with "Free Falling." Based out of Sweden and apparently some of the coolest people in existence, Karolina Komstedt and Johan Angergård continue to release...

Foreign Fields – “Glowworm”

Coming to you from the badger state (Wisconsin), indie rock duo Foreign Fields brings us their latest with "Glowworm." Made up of Brian Holl and Eric Hillman, they recorded this track along with "Faultlines" and "Damages" with engineer Brian Joseph - who has...

wine pride – “Sunshower”

North Carolina based wine pride's latest is "Sunshower" and we're lucky to have the chance to hear it and share it with you over at the BLOG. Bass, guitar and distorted vocals bring a fun low-fi/new wave/shoegaze (shoewave-fi?) vibe reminiscent of acts from across the...

EVNTYD – “Sunday”

Austin based Julián Berdegué, the brains behind EVNTYD ('eventide') brings us their latest with "Sunday." Written about a walk home on Sunday morning after a weekend bender and the (strangely) uplifting sadness that comes with it, Berdegué hits hard with this...

Bonfire Vanity – “Key to the City of No Regrets”

"Key to the City of No Regrets" is the latest from NYC based four piece Bonfire Vanity, who are apparently very talented when it comes to song writing, song names, and band names. With a title like that there's just no telling what you're getting into, but thankfully...

Laurel – “45 Degrees”

45 Degrees is the latest from LA based Laurel Arnell-Cullen, aka Laurel, released in anticipation of her forthcoming album "Palpitation" due out June 14th. This is one hundred percent a delightful pop romp, with Laurel's impeccable pipes blazing the way. I know I...

Paris ’82 – “Lost My Way”

"Lost My Way" is the latest single from Paris '82, a project from electronica singer/songwriter Ethan Farmer. I couldn't find much info on him other than his IG and X; but through the intriguing mystique, he seems like a cool dude from what I could see. The track...

néomí – “talk shit”

"talk shit" is the latest from Neomi Speelman, better know by her stage name néomí, off of her album "somebody's daughter." We've covered her her previously here, and not much has changed on our thoughts; s stunning folk-bedroom-dream pop-aesthetic in the vein Phoebe...

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.

Gatto Black – “Escape You”

A recent poster for a show at Amy’s Place in Buffalo described Gatto Black as SSRI post-hardcore and it’s pretty spot on. Sal Mastrocola, the group’s main songwriter, has an anxious and very emo take on hardcore. Mastrocola popped onto the scene a few years back with...

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...
