• New album “konjac-tion” is out on 23rd July!

    Based on the concept of a “block party”, this album represents people connecting with people, and people connecting with all manners of things!

    Celebrating their 20th year , 2013 saw Buffalo Daughter release not just another run-of-the-mill “best of” compilation, but rather, their ultimate selection album ReDiscoVer.Best,Re-recordings and Remixes of Buffalo Daughter. And kicking off 2014, they power up their activity level with the long-awaited tours of both the US and Europe.

    And now, following a 4-year hiatus, Buffalo Daughter is happy to announce the release of their latest full-length album!

    It all began in April of 2011, at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan, where Buffalo Daughter was invited to perform at the exhibition of works by famed UK artist Peter McDonald. The theme of that exhibition was, in a nutshell, “block party”. A collaboration born out of the fact that Peter had been a longtime fan of the band, Buffalo Daughter found themselves performing in front of Peter’s vivid paintings, within a museum and exhibition that was transformed into a “Disco”. This album continues on this trajectory of a true collaboration of art and music – this concept of a “block party”!

    And the title? Konjaction. (pronounced Kon-yac-shon)

    A play on words between ‘connection’ and the Japanese word ‘こんにゃく[kon-nyaku or konjac]’ (a soft, pliable, rubbery potato-based Japanese cake food. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konjac)

    Starting with a chance meeting with Peter, and grown out of the many fun and interesting interactions that the band has nurtured over time, the title reflects the band’s Japanese identity and many unique connections, flexible and pliable like ‘konjac’.

    This release consists of not only a full album of brand new tracks (including the lead single “Oui Oui”), but also will include a second disc of remixes by some worldwide producers/remixers that are sure to draw the attention of the listening public worldwide!
