"... a snappy brand of slacker indie-pop." - Northeast Performer

"Lemonheads, Ween, Green Day, The Replacements"

"The Buckners offer solid pop that is both energetic and easy. Compared to bands like The Lemonheads, Ween, Green Day and The Replacements, this long-lasting outfit continues to please and wow fans all over the region." - Allston-Brighton TAB

"Catchy and Melodic"

"... a knack for writing catchy and melodic alterna/pop songs." - Musician's Trade Journal

"Beautiful and Ballsy"

THE BUCKNERS: See You in Court
"Hold everything, stop the presses, let me make sure I’ve got this right: intelligent pop music with honest to goodness hooks and lyrics that talk about real life situations without resorting to clichés? Can it be true? Yes, indeed. The Buckners deliver the goods, boys and girls. Right from the opening number, with the rhythm guitar playing a variation of Lou Reed’s “Sweet Jane”, this 6-song collection is everything I like in a pop record. Part Big Star, part Gigolo Aunts; part jangle-pop, part post punk; part story-song, part introspective soul-searching. The guitar interplay is at once beautiful and ballsy. The vocals are real, with harmonies that make you want to sing along, just like you did when you were 13. I like this record a whole heckuvalot. The two standout tracks are "Jumpin' Around" and "X-Communication," but there isn't a dud to be found."

"Wonderfully Infectious Tunes"

"The Buckners are a wonderfully exciting band. Playing pop music in the purest sense of the word, these guys write wonderfully infectious tunes that just sound great. Direct guitar-driven cuts include "Here Comes Your Boyfriend," "Jumpin' Around," and "Confident." Excellent pop played with infectious energy. A band to keep en(sic) eye on. Cool stuff. (Rating: 4++++)"

See You in Court
The Orange EP



The Buckners play a brand of guitar pop that is both smart and powerful, with a few quirks thrown in for good measure. The group has played countless shows throughout the Northeast, and fans old and new are psyched about the band’s latest EP "See You in Court." Memorable, sing-along melodies, strong harmonies, and contrasting guitar parts are always prominent. The band's rhythm section is versatile enough to offer a light touch for “jangle-pop” tunes, but can up the ante when needed for "bigger" rock songs. The Buckners write clever and sometimes poignant lyrics without relying on tired vocabulary. Overall, the band has embraced references to artists including Weezer, They Might Be Giants, and the Meat Puppets.
