Custardpaws & Mr. Freezy: The Buffalo.

Go to the Custardpaws & Mr. Freezy page on Bandcamp to preview and purchase the album:Custardpaws & Mr. Freezy (a.k.a. Blair Wells and Jeff Badger) have reunited to release The Buffalo, the followup to our self-titled LP recorded way back in 1999. The new album was recorded over two weekends in 2010 and features fourteen songs that span from sun-drenched psychedelia to gritty punk to earnest folk to synthy-dance-pop, all rendered in the (soon-to-be-considered) classic CPMF style.
