What's In It For, from the album Avi Buffalo

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

Editorial Reviews

Avi Buffalo is the adopted name of Avigdor Zahner-Isenberg, an 18 year-old singer/songwriter and guitarist from Long Beach, CA. Avi Buffalo is also the name of the band he formed with friends and like-minded collaborators Sheridan Riley (drums), Arin Fazio (the old man at nearly 21 on bass) and Rebecca Coleman (keyboards and vocals). It (Avi Buffalo) is also the name of his/their debut full-length album, which we are just ridiculously puffed-up about releasing on April 27, 2010. By the time you read this, they will pretty much all be out of high school. They ve toured with Beach House, Final Fantasy, opened for Vampire Weekend and found fans at KCRW and Steve Lamacq at the BBC. That s where they are now: about to follow their first ten songs into the outside world, about to celebrate a 21st birthday and about to settle into something that they could do for the rest of their lives. Note! The version of What s In It For? to be found on the album is the same as the one found on the What s In It For? 7" single that we released back in December. The version of Jessica on the album is altogether different from the version that is the b-side of that same single.

4.0 out of 5 stars Avi Buffalo - S/T 7/10 August 8, 2010
Format:Audio CD
When precocious Long Beach young `uns Avi Buffalo released their anticipated debut earlier this year, they had all the prerequisites for their own hype machine: hot single(s), Pitchfork approval, a fairly surprising rating on Metacritic (82!). I listened to one song, judged them as an early Shins knock-off and promptly forgot about them. That's the problem with hype - too much of it and you go into the listen expecting something utterly mind-blowing, something that will live up to an almost mythic status all this blogosphere talk builds up yet rarely matches. Avi Buffalo is not mind-blowing, nor is it even one of the best debuts I've heard this year. Simply put, it's great, solid indie-pop music, music that merely portends the arrival of a band that has more potential than most their age and some pretty slick songwriting chops.

I really wanted to give this a higher rating, particularly after hearing gems like opener "Truth Sets In" or "Coaxed," songs that replicate the gentle flow of (yes) early Shins or debut-album Noah and the Whale. It's twee without being overly cute, something hard to do when your band is besieged everywhere they go by the constant addendum "but they're only 19!!!" Excellently-named vocalist Avigdor Zahner-Isenberg sounds just like a dozen other indie-pop vocalists, having mastered the art of the high-pitched, fragile whisper and the occasional faux falsetto, but it's the songwriting that elevates Avi Buffalo from the also-rans. "What's In It For?" is a fantastic pop single, marrying a beautiful melody to a stick-in-your-head hook and the kind of instant accessibility that future MTV-show soundtracks are made of. That's not a knock on the band's obvious penchant for writing songs everyone is interested in nowadays, but a testament to how well the songs click.

5.0 out of 5 stars Having Something I've Been Looking For August 7, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I think this is one of the best records of 2010, there's something quite awesome about it. Same feeling I got from hearing The Shins, Death Cab For Cutie, Vampire Weekend, Fruit Bats etc. for the first time. It's not too often I find that special quality. Definately a record that's well worth buying.

I'm not a Pitchfork kid, but I heard these guys on Sirius radio and their singles were great. I saw them live and they were great. This album is delightful and it is crazy that these guys are like 18 or something.

This has to be one of my favorite albums from 2010.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mature Work from Some Very Young Musicians August 29, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When I first listened to this album, I was convinced that the members this band was probably in their late 20s or early 30s and have probably had a few releases under smaller labels. The singer's voice sounded pretty young, though. I was pretty shocked to find out the singer and guitarist was only 19. His songwriting is extremely mature. He's definitely not just about power chords. He's got some great jazz riffs and also has a great sense of melody. In my opinion this is one of the best indie rock releases since "Hissing Fauna." Avi Buffalo may be young, but he's definitely the real deal and I look forward to a long and interesting career in his future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Band of Colts - great start! June 1, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I was headed for the Sasquatch Music fest (Washington state), saw them on the bill, was totally unfamiliar. Tracked them down, quickly fell in love with their talent, enthusiasm and rich melodies. Flaming Lips, early Neil Young, shades of early Modest Mouse come to mind - but all filtered through the unique Avi.

Lastly, finally realized that they've become what Band of Horses should have been...BOH has, in my opinion, lost its legs (maybe why they're no longer on my favorite label, Sub Pop - who signed, almost in their place, Avi Buffalo).

Just saw them 2 days ago, and they're spot on live (though Avi is a spazz, who needs to let the other band members reign him in). They're so young, I see lots of great things in their future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressed February 18, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This CD impressed me. I will listen to more of their music. It is a CD that has me feeling there is hope that young people can make music that is not aimed at making themselves stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just one of those rare albums... June 10, 2011
By Ryan
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Someone recently told me about this band very nonchalantly so i decided to check them out- i was intrigued by what i heard so i bought the album and gave it a whirl. I was immediately reminded why i love music so much, this is one of those rare albums (in the vein of animal collective's MPP, the Shins 'wincing the night away', and death cabs 'plans') that makes you feel like you're hearing different and better songs each time you listen to it. Obviously the first two songs are the most accessible at first listen, but tracks like 'jessica', 'five little sluts', and 'remember last time' just absolutely entrench themselves into your head and don't leave. I have recently found myself trying not to listen to this cd because i'm worried i'll overplay it too quickly as it is the only thing i want to hear now! Just get it you won't regret it.
