Meet Young Buffalo and have an early look at a band that will wind up on countless best of lists at the end of this year. Soaring 3-piece harmonies – check. Jangly, indie guitar with hints of Afrobeat – checkerooni. Band members that are young enough to be my children – you betcha. Hailing from Brooklyn – check…wait, what? They’re from Oxford, MS? Shut the fuck up. Yep, says it right on their myspace page so it has to be true.
They cite comparisons to the Fleet Foxes, but I didn’t hear it until checking out that video below. Actually remind me more of Local Natives. Prepare for tons of buzz about them after their debut comes out via Fat Possum and they conquer SXSW.
You can also hear their fresh Daytrotter Session here.
