Avi Buffalo – Avi Buffalo

June 4, 2010

I liked this self-titled lp from Avi Buffalo the first time I heard it; I like it even more a month later. In fact, with ten catchy, witty, and intelligent songs, it might well be one of my favorites this year.

In a way it’s sort of like Cheap Trick — who, not coincidentally I think, also wrote and performed a bunch of catchy, witty, and intelligent songs. Yes, there’s a kind-of-gimmick, but it’s almost too bad that there is a gimmick, because the music is so good that it really doesn’t need one. Although wisdom beyond one’s years is always a nice thing to have and often does make for good songwriting potential too.
