Donna the Buffalo – Silverlined

first_imgMusic festival darlings Donna the Buffalo celebrate their 20th anniversary with their latest offering Silverlined , the band’s seventh studio album to date. Led by founding members, lead guitarist Jeb Puryear and multi-instrumentalist Tara Nevins, DTB doesn’t necessarily break any new musical ground over the course of the album’s 13 tracks.  Instead what they achieve is just another solid collection of countrified, Cajun-flavored, reggae-infused sounds, which have become their musical calling card. While Silverlined doesn’t measure up to the band’s earlier work from the mid to late 1990’s, there’s still plenty of goodies throughout to make long-time fans happy including the album opener “Temporary Misery” (with guest vocalist Claire Lynch), the live favorite “Biggie K”, which is presented here with a smoking horn section, and the album’s title track with a guest vocal appearance by David Hidalgo of Los Lobos.  Here’s to 20 years and counting.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               -Shaun Harveylast_img read more

Isla set for QPR move

first_img The 47-cap Chile defender has completed his medical at Loftus Road and tweeted news of his move on Tuesday morning, before later removing the post. Redknapp’s fourth summer signing should be officially ratified just a day after QPR paid a fee believed to reach £6million to prise Jordon Mutch away from Cardiff City. The 26-year-old Chilean should see his QPR move confirmed once the club receive official endorsement on the transfer from the Football Association. Manager Harry Redknapp has secured Isla’s services on a one-year loan with a view to a permanent transfer, Press Association Sport understands. Juventus defender Mauricio Isla has completed terms on a season-long loan deal with QPR, with the London club awaiting work-permit confirmation.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
