Artist: The American Buffalo
Song: Parting Gifts
Released: October 29, 2018

One part sad break-up jam and two parts New Orleans horn-infused folk sing-along,  The American Buffalo’s new indie folk song is a feel-good song even if it’s not supposed to be. It made me feel good, at least.

With a long crescendo that spans the length of the song, the tension and excitement build into an amazing array of passionately sung lyrics, vibrant horns, and honky-tonk piano to create one of the most creative indie folk songs I’ve heard this year.

Oh, and did I mention American Buffalo’s Josh Edward managed to effectively work in a Yankee Doodle horn riff as a fairly prominent part of the song? It works amazingly well. Don’t believe me, check it out below.

The American Buffalo is the music and art project led by Dayton, OH-based Josh Edward. They released their first single in 2017 and will be releasing the debut full-length album, Reflections in 2019.
