Buffalo Summer

Welsh music is often stereo-typed into being a classical and celtic affair with choirs and harpists. And while this is true to some extent, there really is something for everyone in the Welsh music scene these days. There a new bands popping up everywhere on the local scene with new and exciting sounds. Take 'Buffalo Summer' for example, who played recently at Swansea's very own Sin City nightclub. Their countrified sound really gets your feet tapping, and with the strong, unique guitar riffs in 'Down By The River', they instantly draw the fans in. With a name like ' Buffalo Summer', they could easily be an American country band, and they definitely give off that cool, laid-back vibe.
Definitely worth a listen to and if you can manage to get to see them at a gig, even better!

  1. I really like how clear the layout of your blog is, yet it has a very vintage feel to it. The use of pictures accompanying the music you are reviewing is very helpful to those wanting to identify the artist, and who are looking to buy the music. Your blog title 'The Land of Song' is very patriotic and I personally found that such a title made the blog appear genuine in terms of the passion shown towards Wales. This is a great blog!

  2. I like how easy your blog is to read, the layout is lovely but not too much and everything is very clear. Your content is also really well written and the theme of the blog itself stands out as not enough tributes are made to Welsh music. Love it :)
