if you haven't heard them, check them out!
first, is Avi Buffalo. i read about them in L.A. Record.
these kids are in highschool and they're fantastic.
here is one of my favorite songs by them, "summer cum"
i get this song stuck in my head a lot and i just love the melody.
if you like what you hear, you can check out some of their other songs on myspace.com/avibuffalo
they'll be playing at the f.y.fest (formerly known as the fuck yeah fest) in l.a. on sept. 5th along with a ton of other great bands.

the other night, we played at rob's vintique and i met a nice lady named virginia who really liked our music. she introduced me to her other "favorite sister band," First Aid Kit, from sweden.
these girls are also young (19 and 16?) and are super talented.
here is one of their songs, as well as a fantastic fleet foxes cover that virginia sent me.
