AUG 15 - VANFEST (MAPLE VALLEY, WA)
ROAMING HERDS OF BUFFALO
Roaming Herds of Buffalo (abbrev. RHOB) is an indie rock band in Seattle, WA. The members are Scott Roots, Neal Flaherty, Jared Fiechtner, and William Cremin. Apocalypse Beach is their third full-length album. It was recorded at Jared's Holy Fool Studio, and the production style--basic tracking together in one room with no headphones, minimal overdubs, favoring single takes, etc--aims to capture the band's live chemistry, refined over three years of shows. Contrasted with 2013's cosmically-minded Alien Canyons, the back-to-basics instrumentation befits this collection of songs, which find Scott's lyrics dealing in more earthly human concerns. The artwork of Darin Shuler continues to mark the band's progression at every step, this time casting a cataclysmic seascape in construction cranes and watercolor.
