Buffalo Killers Debut New Track at Relix

Alive Records to release area trio's new full-length on Aug. 7

Powerhouse area power trio Buffalo Killers will have their fourth album, Dig. Sow. Love. Grow., released nationally by Alive Naturalsound Records on Aug. 7. The album will be released on CD and digitally, with a limited edition orange vinyl version available through Bomp! 

From the press release:

Dig. Sow. Love. Grow. is a heady synthesis of not only their own previous efforts, but also the many unique styles of music cultivated on American soil over the last five decades. From late '60s psychedelia, blues, Americana, garage rock and the folk-rock sounds that rolled out of Laurel Canyon in the early '70s like a sweet cloud of Acapulco Gold, brothers Zachary and Andrew Gabbard along with Joseph Sebaali have brought them all together to create an intoxicating album that sounds as timeless as it does remarkably fresh... and quite unlike anything else being released today.

Relix has your first listen to the album, a great heavy track called "Get It." The tune is available for free download through the site here.

Music Tonight: King Tuff, Charlie Hunter and More

Lo-fi Garage Pop royalty, King Tuff, performs a free show tonight at MOTR Pub with Cleveland's Gap Dream. King Tuff is the pseudonym and band name of Kyle Thomas, a Vermont native now based in L.A. who, after a dozen years working of Tuff material as a side project to bands like Feathers and Witch, released the debut full-length Was Dead in 2008 and started focusing solely on King Tuff. It turned out to be a fruitful decision; Sub Pop Records signed King Tuff and put out its self-titled sophomore album this spring.

Charlie Hunter is the kind of guitarist who you can watch and be mesmerized not just sonically but also visually. His unique technique (playing lead, rhythm and bass runs all at once) and adventurous style has helped him build an eclectic fan base. Hunter's involved in many projects, including his duo with drummer Scott Amendola. The pair recently released the conceptual album Not Getting Behind is the New Getting Ahead.

"Our intention in making this record was to tell a bunch of stories around the central theme of the album’s title,” Hunter is quoted on his website talking about the project. "The new tunes are meant to evoke some of the things you might see in your travels through the USA these days. Scott and I wanted to think of each composition as a starting point for some kind of narrative." (Read more about Hunter and the project here.)

Hunter and Amendola perform tonight at the 20th Century Theater in Oakley. Showtime is 8 p.m. and tickets are $20. Here's the twosome performing earlier this year.



• Young Southeastern Indiana Country Pop trio Jetset Getset promotes its debut album Saturday Night (which was released in early October) tonight at Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill next Great American Ball Park. Showtime is 8 p.m. The trio, whose members are 14 and 15 years old, were on a Nashville TV show when retired producer/DJ Jack Gale saw them and decided to come out of retirement to sign them to his Playback Records. The group has that catchy, twangy sound that Country and Pop radio are both in love with right now, so the sky’s the limit. Jetset Getset’s free, all-ages show at Toby Keith’s also serves as a benefit for Play It Forward, the local organization formed to help area musicians in their time of need (with medical, financial and other assistance). Proceeds from the sales of Saturday Night on Nov. 7 will be donated to the cause.

Here's Jetset Getset's video for the album's first single.
