Some fantastic music is being released this spring, and there is not enough money to get it all...
New releases from Broken Social Scene, Dr. Dog, The National, The New Pornographers, and LCD Soundsystem all are safe bets for a rockin' good time, but I am most excited right now by the young, new, LA rockers, Avi Buffalo.
Avi Buffalo's self-titled debut LP came out today, and is going to stay in my rotation for a long, long time. The band is tightly in tune with one another, and their song craftmanship sounds like a band with years and years of experience. (Yet all of the band is under the legal drinking age!) And lead singer/guitarist Avigdor "Avi" Zahner-Isenberg can SHRED. His quick guitar licks are not overly showy, however. Avi's band support is very talented, and the backing harmonies all contribute to a smooth, summer sound.
So yes, while there are many albums to be bought at the moment, Avi Buffalo is well worth the investment.
