Biography

Avi Buffalo was once just the kid named Avi (short for Avigdor Zahner-Isenberg). He’s now singing and playing guitar, but was then a vaguely aspirational skateboarder living in Long Beach, who figured between hip trauma and a never-quite-conquered fear of dropping into a half-pipe that he might need to come up with something else to do with the rest of his life. (Maybe journalist? If ... Read more in Amazon's Avi Buffalo Store

Format: Audio CD
Is youth wasted on the young? It seems not in the case of this new band from Long Beach California fronted by the 19-year-old songwriter called Avigdor Zahner-Isenberg who has behind him his school friends Arin Fazio and Sheridan Riley on bass and drums and Avi's unrequited (on and off) love on backing vocals, his girlfriend and source of teenage angst Ms Rebecca Coleman. The band's prime influences are Simon and Garfunkel, The Beach Boys, Neil Young and the Beatles who are of course all promising artists, and echoes of the whole gamut of them are to be found on this boisterous, flaky, cute, optimistic and charming debut of top notch summer fun.

Its on the sub pop label which might account for why Avi partly sounds like J Mascis crossed with Wayne Coyne particularly on the rather lovely "One last" a sort of Sonny and Cher song for the twitter generation. When it you listen to "Summer Cum" it doesn't take to much imagination to work out its central theme when Avi exhorts that "I've waited for your love, I got lost in your summer cum, leave all your stains with me, And know that I will never be". "My Girls" by the Temptations its not, but it is a very sweet song when you listen to it; honestly! The two centre pieces of the album are the brilliant "What's in it for me" and the seven minute plus "Remember last time". The former has a surf guitar solo, one of the stupidest backing vocals you are likely to encounter and by any standards is a wonderful pop song. "Remember" alternatively is quite a polished affair of Avi's insecurities and mental torture knowing that he "seems to keen" about Ms Coleman.

I found this album completely by accident but I'm very happy to have done so. This could have been another Oracular Spectacular moment But unfortunatly for Avi Buffalo the album didn't catch on the same way. The song writing is great thoughout and there are many highlights ('What's In It For', 'Truth Sets in' and 'Remember Last Time'). In the age of iTunes its a rare album that holds the attention all the way through and this is consistantly good. For anyone who likes MGMT/ Mercury Rev/ The Shins etc, this could be your soundtrack to any summer.

Quite wisely, Avigdor Zahner-Isenberg opted to shorten his moniker for the stage, and, along with three equally young bandmates and his crackling falsetto that more than recalls Wayne Coyne in places, Avi Buffalo is the concise result. With Arin Fazio and Sheridan Riley rounding out the ranks, these three also include one Rebecca Coleman with whom vocals are shared, and if the stories are true, much more in the past. The eyebrow-raising lyrics to the twee "Summer Cum" would seem to confirm it: "I got lost in your summer cum / leave all your stains with me".

Coming on sweetly like Jenny Lewis, Coleman's country-tinged additions bathe the band's self-titled debut in an enviable summeriness. And it's a congruous haze, as the band call Long Beach, California home. Therefore, the waves of West Coast melody that really make the album come as little surprise. Blissful guitar solos such as those that ring out on the lengthy "Remember Last Time" add necessary character and backbone to the pleasantness, as otherwise more aimless offerings such as the fluttery "Coaxed" may have dominated.

Zahner-Isenberg's chosen band name perhaps makes more sense as "What's In It For?" starts to plays out amid echo-y backing vocals. With the lingering embrace of a lost Neil Young track, it suggests a depth of schooling in and admiration for his material, maybe so much so as to even extend as far back as his Buffalo Springfield days. It seems the comparisons never stop either, as the tender, indie DNA of Mercury Rev becomes apparent in the fine strands of Avi Buffalo's make-up. This is perhaps best heard on the beautifully shuffling duet "One Last".

Ultimately, Sub Pop know a good thing when they hear it and rightly they snapped up likeable unit-shifters The Shins when they had the chance.
