The young guns are on the run! Avi Buffalo, a new set of musically-inclined Long Beach bums, are hittin’ the dusty dusty with Rogue Wave and then Japandroids. Peep these youth of Cali’ at some point in their jaunt across America, because they’ll make you feel like a true geezer. But in a good way!
Avi Buffalo is a band, but it’s also the moniker for its leader, 18-year-old Avigdor Zahner-Isenberg, who has gathered together his finest friends to create a nice, mood-heavy alternative to old-man-music like Wilco. They really sex up the song titles, too: “Summer Cum” and “Five Little Sluts” are tracks 6 and 4 on their forthcoming self-titled album, which is due April 27 on Sub Pop.
