Buffalo Moon perform in The Current studio

You'd never be able to tell that the majority of Buffalo Moon's members are originally from South Dakota (except for lead vocalist Karen Freire, who hails from Ecuador). Their unique hybrid of bossa nova, samba soul, and electropop is perfect for the oncoming winter, when you'll need reminding that summer will, eventually, be back.

Buffalo Moon splashed onto the Minneapolis music scene in early April with the release of "Wetsuit." Since then, they have been written up on Pitchfork's offshoot site Altered Zones and scored eighth place in Citypages' "Picked to Click" competition.

Buffalo Moon Stopped by the Local Show to perform a few songs.

Songs performed: "Something in Spanish," "VFW" and "Iowa's Got a New Stripclub (Cat Song)."
