Donna The Buffalo with special guest Native Harrow
DONNA THE BUFFALO offers everything you want in a roots band — songs that matter, a groove that makes you dance, an audience that spans generations, and a musical voice that evokes a sense of community. Dance in the Street, their first new album in five years, captures the dynamic energy that has earned the band the love and respect of their fans, “the Herd”, for thirty years.
The nine tracks of Happier Now were written during three back to back tours across North America supporting NATIVE HARROW‘s second album, Sorores. Recorded in just three days in March 2018 during what Devin Tuel jokingly calls “downtime” in the middle of the grueling 108 date tour, the records oscillates between feeling the sting of uncertainty (“Can’t Go on Like This”), the beauty of California (“Blue Canyon”) and the ache for lavish stability (“Way to Light”). You could say Tuel wears her heart proudly on her sleeve, but that’d be underplaying the exact gravity of her stories. Each starlit image is framed within her warm, enveloping vocals and the careful, profound considerations of bandmate Stephen Harms’ musicianship. Start to finish, the new record pours forth from her very bones, and you get the overwhelming sense she has never been more daring and honest than right now.
