Avi Buffalo - What's In It For?


Are you fan of MGMT? The Shins? Band of Horses? I don't blame you. However, another potential "it" band of 2010, Long Beach's Avi Buffalo, are making music that sounds like all three of the aforementioned bands (and perhaps more). They wear their influences on their sleeves, but the few songs they've released suggest that Avi Buffalo are capable of much more than imitation; with such a small selection of songs, though, my judgment might be ill-timed, and this burgeoning band might simply be derivative. With lyrics like, "You are tiny and your lips are like little pieces of bacon," it is at least safe to say they're interesting. Decide for yourself. If "What's In It For?" is any indication, Avi Buffalo really might be worth the hype.
