Day 158 – Avi Buffalo

A track from the unfortunately (and only very recently) now-defunct California band Avi Buffalo today.

This is Memories of You from their 2014 album At Best Cuckold, and it’s absolute lovely. A little but Flaming Lips, Polyphonic Spree and Elliot Smith wrapped into a neat little package, playing gorgeous songs about the intricacies and follies of a 20-something’s fragile psyche.

The album is awesome, taking in a myriad of styles and influences in its exploration of lead singer Avi Zahner-Isenberg’s soul, and I could happily put the whole thing on and devour it in a single sitting. But as far as entry-level, easy-to-decipher stuff goes, Memories of You is a perfect showcase.

Playful and meandering, without ever getting too wistful or wussy, it’s a really lovely little tune. Hope you like it.
