Next Big Thing For 2011 #5 - Young Buffalo

Like Trophy Wife, Young Buffalo are from Oxford, only the one in Mississippi of the United States. Wikipedia will tell you that thriller author John Grisham has a home in the area, but otherwise there lies an opening for some sweet-ass straight-up indie rock to just burst at the city's seams. One of the best things about this trio is that they don't really look like a band. Another is that they're pretty effing great, as proven by free download 'Three Deep' and forthcoming debut single propa 'Catapilah'. With Kyle 'Slick' Johnson producing (he who engineered the latest Modest Mouse record), YB's first effort will fingers-crossed be one of 2011's most significant.
