ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It all began in Portland, Maine during the fall of 1998. The band that was to become Phantom Buffalo began playing music together as The Ponys. Within a year they were playing in basements and house parties surrounding the art school where they met. In 2002 (when they had finished school) they went into a recording studio to cut tracks for their debut album Shishimumu.

Recorded in 18 hours by Jon Wyman, mastered by David Cheppa and released by Nemo Bidstrup’s burgeoning Portland, Maine based record label Time-Lag Records, Shishimumu received the attention of Rough Trade records records, which released it in the UK February 2005 meeting critical acclaim. In 2008 Phantom Buffalo released Take to the Trees, and two years later released Cement Postcard With Owl Colours this time on the French label Micocultures. It was met with more critical acclaim:
