about

With four of its five members hailing from South Dakota, the bossanova/light psych sound made by the Buffalo Moon would be one wicked curveball even in this epoch of transculturalism. But when you discover that their guitarist/harpist/main vocalist, Karen Freire is originally from Ecuador, their superbly titled Wetsuit begins to make sense. That is not to say that the record isn't without its curveballs. You wouldn't find track names such as "Iowa's Got A New Strip Club" and "Money, Pussy, Weed" on an Astrud Gilberto album nor would expect such adept levels of musicianship, but its there in strokes. Wetsuit is in turns beachy and cosmopolitan, slyly experimental and a lot of fun.
