Avi Buffalo – At Best Cuckold

  • November 2, 2014

Its been four years since the Long Beach, CA indie pop band Avi Buffalo (aka Avigdor Zahner-Isenberg and Co.) released their self-titled debut, and their follow-up, At Best Cuckold, escapes the sophomore slump with a polished collection of off kilter indie-pop. Produced by Isenberg and Jay Pellicci (The Dodos, Deerhoof), At Best Cuckold is reverb soaked with jangly guitars, punchy drums, twisted pop experimentation, and Isenberg’s emotionally charged and high pitched yet whispery vocals. A few highlights include: the breezy “So What”, the Neil Young-esque “Two Cherished Understandings”, the trippy “Think It’s Gonna Happen Again”, and the unexpectedly tender “Oxygen Tank.” At Best Cuckold is an interesting listen that keeps you guessing sonically and leaves you wondering where Avi Buffalo will go next. – Written by JFelton
