Today I will be reviewing the absolutely beautiful album by “Foot” titled “Buffalo”. Now where do I begin? Well let’s just take a moment to point out the artistic duel guitars that’s on this album, at some parts of the album it sounds like they reincarnate Pete and johns duel guitar parts from baroness almost to a tee! And I think that’s just a wonderful thing to create because in this stoner/sludge genre it almost gets repetitive of just over fuzzed guitars and muddy bass tones, so it’s great to hear something thrown in the mix and I think Foot definitely achieve that.
Going from track to track feels like your floating down a river that has all sorts of twists and turns and bumps along the way but overall it flows very nicely together. Some more notable tracks to me are “Thunder Cave”, “Buffalo” and “Lied”, but I think all of these tracks are just fantastic, and I hate to blow smoke up bands butts but “Buffalo” is a near perfect album. I mean even in their description of their album it says ” This album was written after spending time in country Victoria and forms the over-arching concept of using a beautiful piece of nature as an escape or healing mechanism” http://footmelb.bandcamp.com/album/buffalo
This is a Mammoth Tongue first but I’m giving this album a 10/10, go out and support “Foot” from Australia.
