Rocktober: Buffalo Killers

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

"Huma Bird," the latest single from Cincinnati's Buffalo Killers, is a pleasant reminder that roots rock need not merely dabble in tired riffs and overdone chord progressions. Channeling The Band with hickory-smoked harmonies over a ganja-smoked slow drift, the Gabbard brothers manage to be light as air and grainy as a dusty 45. Hear it Friday upon their triumphant return to Ravari.
