Avi Buffalo began when California teenager Avigdor Zahner-Isenberg began home-recording songs in high school. After completing high school, he had a full band, and an offer from esteemed indie label Sub Pop Records quickly followed. Avi Buffalo’s sublime, ethereal Indie Pop wowed critics and fans alike upon the release of the band’s self-titled Sub Pop debut in 2010. There’s a sense of wonder, romance and mystery in Zahner-Isenberg songs, something even more evident on the group’s highly anticipated sophomore full-length, At Best Cuckold, which was released in early September and drew even higher praise from critics. Fans of The Shins and Grandaddy will appreciate the wispy, beautifully melodic genius of Avi Buffalo’s songs, which caress the eardrums as they burrow into the listener’s cranium. The band’s local tour stop will feature support from Cincy Indie rockers Founding Fathers.
