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
