Kinder Bison is a futuristic nod to an America none of us are old enough to have known. Spanning genres from Country Western to Post-rock, we seek to create music that has the grit of the city and the raw dirt of the prairie in one musical package.

Biography

Kinder Bison formed in January 2009 in Eugene Oregon. Now based out of Portland Oregon, the band is poised to reach great heights. With two and three part harmony coloring nearly every song, Pedal Steel ringing out to accentuate the melodies, the warmth of a custom built Upright Bass, the swirling reverb echoes of carefully tuned guitar effects, the beat of a dynamically inclined drummer, and the jangle of an old Gibson acoustic, Kinder Bison has a unique sound that mesmerizes audiences. You will often find members switching spots and moving to different instruments such as banjo, melodica, back up guitar, and second drums. Crafting songs is there forte, often times growing epic songs from simple ditties played around campfires and barbecues. The band's influences span genres, from Hank Williams, Ryan Adams and the Cardinals, Wilco, The Band, and Fleet Foxes, to Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Bon Iver, Neil Young, Feist, and Blitzen Trapper.

Lyrics

Naked Trees

Written By: Andy Kuss

Could I live alone in the summer time?
The sun light to guide me home
Could I live alone in the summer time?
The sun light to keep me company

Could I live alone with the Autumn Leaves?
They rustle beneath my feet
Could I live alone with the naked trees
Their image is burned in my mind

Oh its burned in my mind

Could I live alone in the Wintertime?
The snow so light to pad my fall
Could I live alone in the Wintertime?
No body to keep me warm

Oh to keep me warm

Could I live alone in the Springtime rain?
It pours down to wash me clean
Could I live alone with the blooming flowers?
They push up in unseen hours

and keep me company
oh they keep me company

Spin It Around The Sun

Written By: Andy Kuss

Well you know that its a subtle sound
That'll put your mind at ease
As simple waves
Make there way across the seas

It was only a matter of time
before it happened
Its only what you want and what I need

So....

Don't hold on
It's only wasted time
For the seasons change and turn
and so do you and I

Well its only momentum thats pulling our lives along
In various directions
Its only motion in the end thats spinning
Spin it around the sun
One more time
Spin it around the sun

Take your time don't haste
Take your time and get a taste
Of what it really is
For the best things in life
They aren't things at all
And only hold on to what will last
But what will last?

Its only momentum thats pulling our lives along
In various directions
Its only motion in the end thats spinning
Spin it around the sun one more time
One more time
