Album Review: Buffalo Clover - Low Down Time (Palaver Records)
Formed in 2008, Nashville's Buffalo Clover continue to deliver their own brand of country roots music with ten new songs that just might get you out of your seat and onto your feet. Margo Price is up front once again and means business from the start with her unmistakably assured voice, especially on the opening song Can't Stand Still which contains the album's title. Margo is joined once again by husband Jeremy Ivey, along with Matt Gardner on guitar and banjo and Jason White on bass.
At times there's a distinct feeling that someone's just put a dime in a 1960s juke box, with great R&B songs like Good Man and Oh Well, both infused with the sort of sound you would find on the red Atlantic label before Led Zep came along. Predominantly highly charged, LOW DOWN TIME has some comparably soulful and tender moments, Don't Lie To Yourself, for instance and in particular Seek Me Out, which gives Margo a moment or two by the piano, to the Creedence Clearwater Revival influenced Saint Cathleen, which could give Bad Moon Rising a run for its money.
