Best New Music 2010 – nr.23 – Avi Buffalo

28 04 2010

Avi Buffalo have been popping up here and there more and more. Mentions and reviews across the blogosphere have helped drive a little hype for this Californian indie-folk-pop band. There’s even an interview with The Guardian. One aspect of the band which can be recognized in all the interviews and articles is that these kids – all roughly 19 – are horny. Teenage-blue-ball-horny. At least thats what you get from the (dirty) talks with songwriter and main man behind the band, Avigdor Zahner-Isenberg.

Avi Buffalo make music for sunny afternoons. Time is needed for a listen, and stress is definitely not suitable for the session. Expect a light mood and general sense of aural satisfaction.

Perfect for a barbecue/sundowner on the porch: “Whats In It For”

A great story in form of a musical meanderings, guitar doodles, breaks and really long transitions: “Remember Last Time”

Up close and personal: “Summer Cum” acoustic

another nice home recording, good to fall asleep (or whistle) to: “We Can’t Try This Again”

more sunny home recording: “Distaste and Interest”

to say good-night, here’s “Time On You”

Avi Buffalo’s self-titled debut album just came out yesterday (27th April) and is available via Sub-Pop (home of Beach House, Cocorosie, Foals, and many more). Make sure you check out their myspace for tour dates as they are currently touring Europe, UK, and the US.

Au revoir,
