Buffalo Killers / Press

“Cincinnati has done it again. The Buffalo Killers have come out with the recent explosion of band like the Black Keys and the Afghan Whigs from the Ohio capital. Let it Ride, the follow-up to their debut album Buffalo Killers, is a continuation of the Buffalo Killers’ developing style from their former band Thee Shams. With gritty guitar work and snappy drum fills, Let it Ride escapes the curse of producing the same album twice by expanding the horizons of the Buffalo Killers’ music”

Heave Media

“Sometimes we hear music that looks like it was hatched from a 1993 Nirvana egg and sounds like it spent some time mowing Jerry Garcia’s lawn before going on tour with the Black Crowes and recording an album with one of the guys from The Black Keys. Except for the Nirvana Egg and the lawn mowing (which we made up) Buffalo Killers make that music. They’re well worn—treading a path of plodding bass and fuzzy guitars that we’ve been down many, many, many times before, and their harmonies are recognizable from we don’t know where but somewhere familiar. We’ll spare you any more comparisons to other bands, because you’ll come to those conclusions real quickly yourself, but sometimes you hear a song and it’s fun to listen to and that’s all.”

The Fader

“While everything about this cut, from the laid back Southern charm of the main guitar riff, and the sly, shuffling drum beat, to the velvety vocals, say all-request classic rock request hour, it’s a product of the modern age. With the help of the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, who helmed the producer’s chair, and who knows a thing or two about creating a retro-fantastic vibe, Buffalo Killers managed to avoid the riff by numbers trap which has been the downfall of many a retro rocker, and instead created something authentic. Well, maybe not quite authentic, after all we’re some thirty years beyond AOR. Still, at the very least, "If I Don’t Get Myself Anywhere" is one of the best damn approximations of the Seventies AOR sound around, and that’s no small feat when you’re treading on such well worn ground”

I Rock Cleveland

“This is a solid album, especially if you are a fan of reverb-drenched groovy classic rock. There aren’t any tracks you’ll want to skip. Oh, and if you are a fan of Black Crowes, Buffalo Killers will be touring with them later this year. My advice is to put this on, crank up the volume and let the sound surround you. And make no mistake, the sound will surround you.”

“Sounds like the music I imagine would come from the genetically engineered love child of David Bowie and Joe Walsh. The vocals really remind me of Joe Walsh which is great since he’s the only Eagle whose solo material can make me forget how much I hate the Eagles”
