I know I checked out The White Buffalo back when Once Upon A Time In The West was originally released, but I must have been hopped up on stupid pills that day ‘cause I passed on the cd in the most decisive way possible…I deleted it.
Shame on me.
A couple of weeks ago I was watching Sons Of Anarchy when this completely awesome song starts playing. So, I fire up Soundhound and learn that it’s “The Whistler,” a new single from The White Buffalo. I immediately buy it and start playing it on the radio show and on the podcasts. The awesome factor of the song finally gets the best of me and I pick up Once Upon A Time In The West for a second look-see.
The White Buffalo is a trio out of Southern California, and their sound seems to straddle somewhere between JKutchma & The Five Fifths and Chuck Ragan. How I passed on this cd the first time is genuinely beyond me. It’s like it was custom made for the “ninebullets sound.” I guess, more than anything, I’m just glad I made it back to the cd. Don’t be stupid like me. Check out Once Upon A Time In The West. It is Essential Listening.
