Though not officially available until Aug. 2 to the rest of the world, Southwestern Ohio’s Buffalo Killers begin their touring duties for the new album 3 tonight in Dayton before coming to MOTR Pub Saturday night for their Cincy album release party. In honor of the forthcoming release, today the band issued a free MP3 download today of the song “Love Is Gold,” which was recorded during the 3 sessions, but left off of the album. Click above to listen.
Obviously, the tune — sounding a bit like a lost Big Star/Neil Young collaboration — wasn’t left off the release because of quality, but rather space. Zach Gabbard is quoted in a press release saying, “Every cut can’t make it to the record, but we love this song so much we wanted to share it with everyone.”
