Bring Back The Buffalo consists of Persona Records Berlin-transplant artists Stewart Walker (USA) and Marco Tonni (Italy). This release is the product of continuous, prolonged exposure to the electronic music streaming from clubs, cars, and the windows of plattenbauten which caused a momentary retreat back into the arms of some older influences. Bring Back The Buffalo was the result of playing live techno on the weekends, and then watching a thunderstorm while listening to Elliot Smith on the iPod in the back of a Skoda. Iconoclastic to a fault, right? This nostalgic album is chock-full of melodic and accessible alternative electronic pop and Stewart decided to combine old and new influences with a yearning for the fabled open spaces of the American West when pioneering individuals and families pushed ever westward to greater comfort and opportunity. Later, in the 20th century this wildness expressed itself via bohemian migrations, freed from the tethers of centralized location by the automobile. Bring Back The Buffalo is a hat-tip to modern campfire songs, including catchy, melodic, and playful cowboy chords. Verses that rhyme and standard song structures combine with electronic and acoustic instruments, creating some of the lushest production of Persona's short but brilliant history.
