Way back in the wild wild west lived….

The buffalo. 

Now, in the 21st Century, buffalo dwell upon the ocean floor and feed upon plankton. It’s true, you can find it on Wikipedia!

OK so not really, but if are you looking for sea dwelling, plankton eatting,  buffalo you can find them on the latest (and brilliant) album by The Phoenix Foundation. The album is called, naturally, Buffalo and it hits store shelves (both above and below sea level) on April 26th, 2010. Oh and check out the new re-vamped Phoenix Foundation website here.

Samuel Flynn Scott, member and songwriter of The Phoenix Foundation, spoke with me via Skype a few days ago. We discussed the baby he and his wife are expecting, the new album, the changes the band have undergone, and buffalo and Great Plains, and Wikipedia, and well a few other enjoyable tangents.

The new album is fantastic and really demonstrates the individual strenghts of the band members.

I feature two songs from the album, alongside the chat with Samuel.

So giddy up pardner and have a listen (do buffalo riders really giddy up? Hmmm ….)

Either way enjoy the podcast!

Track 2 Buffalo
Track 4 Pot

P.S. During the chat we discussed E.M.I. … of course with me being a moron I kept thinking of REM

REM were on IRS not EMI…

Yes folks … I completely flubbed that.

  4. I love the redesign! Looking nice…

  5. Hey Sarah!

    Thanks! I just picked a theme from WordPress (I don’t have time to code a design myself!) But yea its clean and neat. 🙂

    Funny you should ask about a new podcast…

    I have one on the way soon with Lucien Johnson. A really phenominal musican and composer out of Wellington.

    Just waiting to get some tunes sent to me and then it’ll be ready to go!

    By the way are you on Facebook? Add me if you’d like… (naturally! haha!)
