Buffalo Tom's ''Skins''

Buffalo Tom, the venerable Boston indie rock band led by singer-songwriter Bill Janovitz, is getting set to release their 8th studio album, their first since 2007’s truly awesome “reunion” album Three Easy Pieces. The new album’s called Skins and it’s set to hit stores next month, but in anticipation of the record’s release, the band has posted an EP of live acoustic(-ish) performances, including “Arise, Watch” from the new album, “CC and Callas” from their last one, and their 1993 college radio hit “Treehouse”, along with a rambling but touchingly heartfelt take on the New Order classic “Age of Consent” that will have Counting Crows kicking themselves for not having thought of it first. You can see video of all four performances below. You can also click below for a link to download the Bones EP:
