Album Review: Avi Buffalo - Self-Titled

Good review.  I'm definitely going to be checking out this album...  Sad I missed them opening for Japandroids last month.

Album Review: Avi Buffalo - Self-Titled
Published: MAY 6, 2010

Sexual frustration has never been so endearing.

Though the members of Avi Buffalo are rather young, this youth brings a lively feel to their latest self titled album. A recent Seattle Weekly article cited that lead singer/song writer Avigdor Zahner-Isenberg was signed in 2008, his senior year of high school. With a sound that reminds us why we first fell in love with The Shins and other quirky acts, Avi Buffalo has potential to be the next important, young act.

The lyrics are so engaging because of how relateable they are. Zahner-Isenberg recreates those awkward moments and confusing thoughts we all had around that ‘special someone’ we had our eye on in high school, and heck even in the rest of our lives too. His approach is unique. He is able to keep the common pleas of desperation simple without losing any emotion or credibility with the listener."
