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.
