While Donna the Buffalo may be better known as the quintessential live roots band, with a loyal following second only to that of the Dead, they also have made a series of superb albums. The latest, their eighth, takes their live groove and adds some studio patina to their distinctive sound. Noticeably, Mark Raudabaugh’s hypnotic drumming and David McCracken’s chant-like organ are often in the forefront. Together they serve, perhaps unexpectedly, to highlight the songwriting talents and, even more than usual, underscore the vibrancy of Jeb Puryear and Tara Nevins’ lead vocals. Such is the paradox of a band with a social consciousness that, like the album’s title, demands that you to get up and dance, dancing itself being a form of resistance.
