A palpable sense of metaphysical dread accompanies two of the album's strongest cuts, the nervy and hallucinatory "Think It's Gonna Happen Again" and the sweetly unhinged "Oxygen Tank," the latter a densely packed rumination on anxiety that amalgamates the pop craftsmanship of Burt Bacharach with the cosmic wonder of Wayne Coyne, and that sense of agitation is what ultimately wins the.
Avi Buffalo (born Avigdor Benyamin Zahner-Isenberg, November 5 1990) is an American musician, songwriter, and producer. The album's first single was "What's In It For" with "Jessica" on the B-side. His band performed at SXSW the same year, and opened for Modest Mouse in July.

If Avi Buffalo’s 2010 debut was a splurge of promising ideas by a young band barely out of high school, At Best Cuckold is a more considered and well-rounded follow-up. It’s not that Avigdor Zahner-Isenberg (right) – the California native who leads the quartet and writes their songs – has lost any of his youthful exuberance, but the 23-year-old has audibly settled into a song-writing groove that belies his years. At Best Cuckold, recorded off and on over the past four years, references many of the same influences as its predecessor, but it has a considered warmth that was previously lacking. That perfect storm of humour, warmth, familiarity and freshness makes both for a thoroughly enjoyable album and a blueprint for something even better – next time.

His new album, At Best Cuckold (streaming here), is a clear departure from Avi Buffalo, offering more full-bodied arrangements and a more broad-minded approach to musical ideas. Avi weaves together conventions from several genres, mixing piano and twanging guitars with his (now deeper) voice. He stays true to his former self by creating imaginative and off-the-wall lyrics. On Oxygen Tank, for instance, Avi embraces country riffs and electronic looping while drawing a complex image of a man carrying an oxygen tank to discuss the pressures of a relationship.
