New Phantom Buffalo song: "Lightbulb Slave"

Phantom Buffalo

I've talked about Phantom Buffalo several times here before, so if you don't dig them by now, then you only have yourself to blame. However if you happen to already be a fan of this fantastic Portland, Maine band, then here's some good news and a brand new song to go with it. While still not set up with U.S. label, the band do indeed plan to have the new album Take To The Trees, the follow-up to 2002's Shishimumu, released by Spring 2007. So if you're a fine-looking U.S. label looking to pick up a few sexy boys, then check them out. RIGHT NOW! Until that time though, chew on this.

Now, the problem with a band like Phantom Buffalo releasing a song as good as "Wilamena," is that as hard as I may try, it will always be the song to beat. Unfortunately for "Lightbulb Slave," "Wilamena" is a really damn good song, and as such, it doesn't quite measure up. That's not to it's not a great song though. It's just saying it's not an outstandingly amazing song. So while it's not groundbreaking, the familiar AIH-esque keyboards and signature strange lyrics I come to love -- "Chase another lightbulb to the shade / make another lightbulb be your slave / and if it gets burned out like before / make another lightbulb be your whore" -- make for a good preview of what's to come.
