The Buzz on the Hounds.
Wow, these guys must really like to party with a name like that? The Buzzhounds will be the first to tell you that the buzz is not chemical, but natural. It is all about the live experience. The give and take between a performer, and an audience on a great night. That’s the buzz…..that’s what it’s all about.
These guys are honest, old school musicians. They do it because they love it, and this creed carries over into their music. “We made an honest record”, this is how we sound. We used the best vintage gear we could find, (including the same mics and soundboard that the Beatles used at abbey road), and went right to tape with very little editing,” says their front man Jeffrey Manga
The result is raw rock and roll. Natural tempo changes and subtle nuances are captured throughout the record, giving it a dynamic, human feel. The record plays like a modern take on 90’s rock, paying tribute to Jane’s Addiction, Guns and Roses, Smashing Pumpkins, Alice and Chains, and Wolfmother, while maintaining an organic, original feel. There is an underlying element of blues and classic rock DNA as well. Each song has a different sonic theme, leaving the listener on the edge of their seat, and asking what’s next ?
“Time and Money” is a favorite of the band’s live repertoire, and for good reason. The track is a 3 minute ditty that takes you on a rocket ride of Robert Plant like vocals, and a guitar solo that sounds like a cross between Slash circa ’89, and a sidewinder missile. “Near or Far” hypnotizes with a mantra like, trance inducing bass line, reminiscent of Janes Addiction ala “Three Days”. Perhaps the most unique song on the record is a track called “On the Way”. The song culminates in one huge crescendo of majestic, stereo panned Pumpkins esq. guitars, and a stunning mid song to finale vocal performance. The deepest track on the record is “Not the Only One” an austere tale of the deceptions of love, with a throwback sound and vibe. “We are particularly proud of this tune”, says Manga. “The performance, vibe, and production all came together brilliantly within the first takes, and Mike (Tholen) really did a great job of getting a cool guitar tone with a vintage analog tape delay machine.” The hook has a notable three part harmony as well, which sits in the mix like a shine on a vintage hot rod.
