2020 marks a decade since The Phoenix Foundation’s Buffalo was born. Featuring a number of the New Zealand group’s most enduring songs, from the gently psychedelic drift of opener Eventually, the idiosyncratic title track (once covered by Lorde, pop pickers!), the sugar-sweet Flock Of Hearts, pidgin-German Bitte Bitte to the soaring melancholy swell of closing tracks Wonton and Golden Ship it’s a record that has well and truly stood the test of time.
Featuring guest appearances from fellow musical travellers Connan Mockasin and Lawrence Arabia, Buffalo took the band on quite a journey. Following its release in New Zealand in April 2010, the album found a home on one of the UK’s finest indie labels Memphis Industries. Hugely acclaimed on its European release, The Phoenix Foundation headed over to these shores for a run of sold out shows, appearances on TV in the UK and Germany, including a coveted slot on ‘Later… with Jools’, and saw them find a multitude of new fans including, but not limited to a certain Jarvis Cocker.
To celebrate the anniversary, it is being made available in a limited edition of 250 ocean blue-coloured vinyl LPs. While preparing for this reissue the band discovered a vault with a missing herd of Buffalo’s Children, seven previous unreleased tracks available as a bonus CD initial orders while stocks last.
