Damn, I love it when a single tweet opens up a can of worms. Minneapolis via South Dakota/South America five-piece Buffalo Moon just dropped their Wetsuit tape on Moon Glyph. I'll pass it off to the label to describe what's going on:

"With four of its five members hailing from South Dakota, the bossanova/light psych sound made by the Buffalo Moon would be one wicked curveball even in this epoch of transculturalism. But when you discover that their guitarist/harpist/main vocalist, Karen Freire is originally from Ecuador, their superbly titled Wetsuit begins to make sense. That is not to say that the record isn't without its curveballs. You wouldn't find track names such as "Iowa's Got A New Strip Club" and "Money, Pussy, Weed" on an Astrud Gilberto album nor would expect such adept levels of musicianship, but its there in strokes. Wetsuit is in turns beachy and cosmopolitan, slyly experimental and a lot of fun."

Here's a sample from the tape, "Poolside Dreaming." If you're like me and live in the Northeastern corridor of the United States, you most likely understand how appropriate it is that this track/tape dropped today -- superbly sunny and immaculately slinky, shit should bring a smile to the face of all you fellow Twin Sister slobberers who are finally ready to walk outside without a jacket and see the months-long grey/brown turn to green.

Grab this free MP3 sample, check one more called "Jamba Samba" on their Myspace and for the love of Spring, ORDER THAT TAPE.
