Lord Buffalo is a five piece band from Austin, TX. Lord Buffalo sounds like boots on gravel at night, or trains howling or waking up with your jeans on. Lord Buffalo specializes in dark folk that often explodes into trembling yowls, canyon echos, great plains field noise, southern gothic admonitions and psychedelic gray matter. Often compared to Nick Cave, Woven Hand or the creep who got your sister pregnant, Lord Buffalo is known for stomping, intense live shows and for always having river mud under their fingernails.
My name is Haley Bonar (rhymes with Daily Honor), I am a 29 year old singer/songwriter who resides in the lovely village of Saint Paul, MN. Since I can remember, I have been writing songs and singing. I grew up in the Black Hills of South Dakota and was blessed with creative parents and younger siblings who I could direct in our games, theatrics, and dances. In my senior year of high school I recorded and self released my ﬁrst batch of songs on a self-titled album, my graduation gift from my parents.

Since the mid 90s, The Linus Pauling Quartet has been playing their particular brand of Texas stoner metal/garage psych infused with their obsessions for drugs, beer, sci-fi/fantasy, and the mighty Bongs of Power. Over the years, they've appeared at multiple SXSW and Terrastock festivals, contributed tracks on several psych compilations and singles, and recorded 8 full-length studio albums - the most recent of which, "Bag of Hammers", is perhaps the heaviest thing they have ever released into the wild.
