Avi Buffalo (Sans Maria)

Apr 30th, 2010 in Music

The Long Beach band, Avi Buffalo, came to Santa Barbara to play at Jensen’s courtesy of the ubiquitous Club Mercy.  Everywhere and mercy-ful!

Consisting of Avi on guitar and vocals, Rebecca Coleman on keys and vocals, Arin Fazio on bass, and Sheridan Riley on drums, and recently signed to SubPop, this band of 19-year olds plays and strives decades beyond their years.   Their songs feature complex, extraordinary chords and key changes, with Shins-esque vocals thrown in intermittently.  From time to time one hears Beach Boys influences, at others the Byrds, and still others the Beatles.  These are the  Killer-Bs.  Add to that some crazy-good musicianship (with an occasional dollop of prog) and limned innocence lyrics-wise, and you have a band preparing to bust through.  Good stuff.  Check out (in particular) the songs Remember Last Time and What’s In It For? below.
