Boston Herald Review

Jed Gottlieb Saturday, March 03, 2018
Most songwriters peak. Few fans think Bob Dylan improved after “Blood on the Tracks.” Nobody champions Bruce Springsteen’s “Wrecking Ball” over “Born to Run.” But subtract the nostalgia you feel for Buffalo Tom’s “Let Me Come Over” and you’ll likely find the new album “Quiet and Peace” as great as anything the band has done — don’t doubt my claim until you have listened to the quintessential Buffalo Tom track “Lonely Fast and Deep.”

The Boston trio of singer-guitarist Bill Janovitz, singer-bassist Chris Colbourn and drummer Tom Maginnis have nothing to prove. The guys will never make the band a full-time gig again — their ninth album comes after a seven-year break. Maybe it’s this freedom that allows them to write clear-eyed, adult rock ’n’ roll. (Note: This is not meant as a pejorative.)

They fill “Quiet and Peace” with tight rock about complex relationships. “Roman Cars” captures something between mature and playful, an aesthetic between the Kinks and R.E.M. “In the Ice” features a melody and melancholy that echoes Janovitz’s deeply underrated solo album “Walt Whitman Mall.” Flirting with folk, punk and rock drones, the band sounds endlessly comfortable with its art.

Buffalo Tom returns to the Paradise on April 20.

New Song and Video For "Roman Cars" From The Forthcoming Album Quiet And Peace, Out March 2

New Song and Video For "Roman Cars" From The Forthcoming Album Quiet And Peace, Out March 2

Buffalo Tom Release New Song and Video For "Roman Cars" From The Forthcoming Album Quiet And Peace, Out March 2

 

See the video premiere via KEXP here

 

Against a beautifully-animated clip, painted in muted colors, the band delivers that exuberant, Big-Star-esque sound that we fell in love with 25 years ago. – KEXP

 

Boston-based indie faves Buffalo Tom have released "Roman Cars" the first video from their forthcoming album, Quiet and Peace, due March 2, 2018 via Scrawny/Schoolkids Records. Head to KEXP to see the exclusive premiere. The trio will kick off a U.S. tour March 1st in Seattle with a live performance on KEXP and at Neumo's later that night before heading to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Brooklyn and their hometown of Boston. More dates to be added soon.

Quiet and Peace is a compelling 11-song set that finds the trio—singer-guitarist Bill Janovitz, bassist-vocalist Chris Colbourn and drummer Tom Maginnis—simultaneously mining their best-known sonic elements while breaking new ground on emotionally resonant new tunes such as "All Be Gone," "Overtime," "Freckles" and "CatVMouse." Full of nostalgic and dusky imagery, much of Quiet And Peace emerges from New England's less visited darker corners, offering a sort-of poetic travelogue of faded colors and woods illuminated in the light of the seaside. 

Buffalo Tom's first collection since 2011's Skins, Quiet and Peace was mixed by John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth, The Hold Steady) and marks the band's first collaboration with producer and fellow Boston alt-rock legend David Minehan, renowned ex-leader of the Neighborhoods.
