Frolicking somewhere between the dusty vintage past and the psychedelic rafters of the future, Buffaloswans are a five-piece beast from Vancouver, BC who play in the fields and forests of Cosmic American Music. Their live performance is a shimmering achievement within the local music scene in Vancouver where they have performed on bills with everyone from Dan Mangan to Two Hours Traffic. Made up of excruciatingly talented musicians and sound engineers, Scott Bell, Jobi Mihajlovich, James Lamb, Stephan Mihajlovich, and James Green, their dynamic recordings, and explicitly mystical lyricism are exemplified by a fantastically dance inducing stage performance. The Buffaloswans are bound to immediately breeze right into your heart, and leave you with magic in your mind days later.

Buffaloswans have just finished work on their second studio album, 'The Body Electric', a full length post-modern exercise in beauty, atmosphere, space, consciousness, and love. And are taking a brief break from performing to shop the new record around and plan to see more of you in the world next Spring! Stay tuned!

"['Buffaloswans'] is a record that should sit alongside the work of The Band in the annals of strong Canadian Americana, and its release comes just in time for the Late Fall of Buffalowans, currently underway." -Saidthegramophone

"Chalk up yet another great record from our vibrant local music scene... relaxing pedal steel workouts, Crazy horse barnburner jams & Americana imagery that speeds you down the highways of central Ohio through a blurry haze of rusty farm implements & sonic revelations." - RedCat Records

"Inspiration for the band grows from the soil of the praries, a 60’s style of bluesy, country-rock reminiscent of a lazy night with a southern breeze. Twangy guitars and a friendly piano, mix with the rhythm to provide a melody designed to pacify the soul... lyrically the band delves into the mysteries of life and earth. Their self-titled debut album focuses greatly on the duality of life and our relationships with the world. It’s a heartening reminder that in a time where our planet might seem to be falling apart, there is a stronger force bringing people together all around us if we’re buoyant enough to notice." - The Examiner
