Holy Water Buffalo = The Strokes + Screaming Trees + The Doors

Although this is the debut album from local foursome Holy Water Buffalo, one would be hard-pressed knowing it after a close listen. These Heber boys have done their share of listening to rock records of yesteryear, spinning a polished twist on the prescribed notion of “garage rock.”

Every track delivers a tight, pulled-together sound in which each instrument can distinctly be heard. From the soft, country-tinged track “What Is and What’s To Come” to heavier songs such as “Buffalo Hunter,” Holy Water Buffalo brings an impressive display of rock diversity and is quickly gaining momentum.
