    If you have not read the longform piece that WKU Herald did about the history of Bowling Green, Kentucky's music scene, you need to read it HERE now. Entitled "Mayberry on Mushrooms," the university newspaper staff does a great job of championing America's best unknown (or maybe known now) music scene. It really took off with Government Cheese in the mid-1980s and still features bands ready to break.

    One of the bands of the present and definitely the future of Bowling Green featured in the piece is Buffalo Rodeo. 2015 will be the biggest year in their four year history. They will release their first full length album and will likely handle the most touring they have ever done. (They are bound to come to Louisville a few times. Stay tuned later this month.)

    They got 2015 momentum started right before 2014 ended by releasing "No End In Sound," a single hopefully on the aforementioned album, on New Year's Eve. The song is now listed on bandcamp as name your price.

    With this new song, the five piece Buffalo Rodeo feels like they could be on to the start of something big. "No End In Sound" is the first song they have released from their sessions in a warehouse in, let's say, middle of nowhere, Kentucky. Bassist Ryan Gilbert told me at Moontower Music Festival this summer that the town was just big enough to have a library.

    As for the song itself, the guy/girl vocals from singers Jordan Reynolds and Zack Preston are reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac. (They know that, like the band, and cover them live). Their signature sound though comes from the pedal board of guitarist Nate Davis. Davis unleashes spacey riffs throughout this five minute track. Many of Bowling Green's best bands like Cage The Elephant and Sleeper Agent started in the hard rockin' house show scene just like Buffalo Rodeo and more songs like "No End In Sound" could send them to great clubs and festivals across the country. 

    Stay tuned to their Facebook page for a year of great announcements from Bowling Green's next best thing.
