Last American Buffalo have been through a lot since their first full length album in 2007. The band has largely been the brainchild of singer and lead guitarist Kevin Compton, supported by a cast of five other musicians. After completely reshuffling the lineup in 2011, Last American Buffalo released a self-titled EP in April of 2011. The band has been playing the usual lounger and residency gigs in Los Angeles, and they are set to kick off the new year with a residency at Harvard & Stone starting tonight. Check them out at the free show, and download the new track “So Cruel” right her on Rabbits Black.
When we say new, we mean new. Kevin mastered the track late last night, got it up on the website for download, and sent it to us early this morning. So get to downloading, because Kevin is all about sharing the music. “So Cruel” is an Americana voyage with the blistering sun beating down on the top of your head. The backing vocals from “Yucca Baccatta” are back, and we like it!
Download the track here, and then head over to Last American Buffalo’s website to listen to the rest of their catalogue. See you tonight!
