  • BUFFALO KILLERS’ ANDY GABBARD NEW “JUICE” SINGLE OUT NOW VIA ITUNES & SPOTIFY | “JUICE” IS THE FIRST SINGLE FROM HIS FORTHCOMING SOPHOMORE SOLO ALBUM “PLENUM CASTLE” OUT JULY 14TH (DIGITAL & STREAMING ONLY) VIA ALIVE NATURALSOUND RECORDS

    Andy Gabbard is a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist from Dayton, Ohio, who plays with Buffalo Killers, a band that he founded with his brother Zachary. He is also a former member of Thee Shams, a garage rock band that he joined when he was seventeen.

    Andy’s solo work has been compared to the usual suspects: Brian Wilson (who praised his recent EP of Beach Boys covers), Neil Young, Syd Barrett, The Beatles, and even Dinosaur Jr. and Nirvana. But his sophomore album Plenum Castle is a departure from the straight-forward fuzz pop of his debut effort Fluff (he actually performed all the instruments on that one). This new album goes deeper in the pop, playing with new sounds and styles, and showcasing a skillfulness in songwriting.

    BUFFALO KILLERS’ ANDY GABBARD TO RELEASE DEBUT SOLO ALBUM “FLUFF” MARCH 24, 2015 VIA ALIVE NATURALSOUND RECORDS!

    Brimming with creativity, Fluff by Andy Gabbard, his debut release as a solo artist on Alive Naturalsound Records, isn’t moving beyond what Andy has done, or will continue to do with Buffalo Killers. Sometimes, ultimately, you find yourself with extra moments and more ideas than one band can develop. So naturally, it made perfect sense to give that inward creative need an outlet. Fluff is the end result.

    Cut in one 12-hour studio session, Andy took on the full responsibility of doing a solo album literally. He played every instrument and wrote everything you hear. Reviving an established relationship with Alive Records, on Fluff you can hear the deeply-solid effects of the grunge genre and mid-’90s ‘alternative music’ in a sonic gestalt. Exhibiting characteristics of fairly recent genres, as well as some classics that surrounded him during his youth, Fluff breaks barriers of seemingly comfortable, unthreatening music cultivating a physical embodiment of Nirvana, The Smashing Pumpkins, latter Beatles and even Brian Wilson!

    Fluff defines Andy’s environment, a creative environment… an environment of ultra-dimensional levels. The days of solo albums being released due to further ‘artistic development’ past a bands catalog of hits, are over. Buffalo Killers continue their successful run and now, it’s not running alone. Fluff is the start of something great and fathers the true sonic beauty and the relative nature of one single person and their soundtrack of nearly unending smiles in a sea of tumultuous frowns. – Shawn Abnoxious

    Andy Gabbard’s Fluff will be available March 24th, 2015 on CD, digital and limited edition colored vinyl through Alive Naturalsound Records.

  • HERE’S WHAT PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SAYING ABOUT ANDY GABBARD’S “FLUFF”

    • "Fluff is a magnificent Rock & Roll album overflowing with so many stellar, brain-burrowing melodies, it’s more than fair to call it a Power Pop record (emphasis on both the “power” and the “Pop,” equally). Gabbard recorded the entire album in one 12-hour session and played all of the instruments, something you would never guess by listening — it sounds like a full band that has been together as long as Gabbard’s main project [Buffalo Killers]. The guitars are often loud and blissfully fuzzed out, while the bass and drums pound out the rhythms with muscular abandon. Blended with those remarkable, often gorgeous melodies, it creates a sort of joyous “dirty beauty” that is irresistible." - CINCINNATI CITY BEAT
    • “…immediately appealing and will likely necessitate repeat listening sessions. Fluff will be an unforgettable experience for listeners.” – DIFFUSER.FM
    • "Charming'" - SPIN
    • “…simultaneously distorted, psychedelic and enthusiastic. Cut in one 12-hour session with Gabbard on every instrument, one track barrels into the next, urgent but not rushed, and evokes some of the fantastical imagery of Syd Barrett and Roky Erickson and the fuzzy bliss of Dinosaur Jr. and the Atomic Bitchwax.” – ALL MUSIC
    • “Trippy-tinged collection of tunes that brings fuzzy pop sense to Gabbard’s writings.” - POPMATTERS
    • “If you hear the Foo Fighters meet Superdrag then dance with Dinosaur Jr., I believe you got it!” – THE FIRE NOTE
    • … a flashback to the ’90s heyday of Alternative Nation.” - BUCKETFULL OF NAILS
    • [5 out of 5 stars!] “While this album is 12 songs, it's over before you know it. Perhaps that's because the songs are so good that you aren't even really aware of how much time has passed since you started the album. Fluff will be available from Alive Naturalsound Records on 24 March. If you're a fan of Buffalo Killers, it's safe to assume that you'll love this solo album from Andy Gabbard.” - AXS / EXAMINER
    • “These songs are big, airy, and fill the listener full of hope.” – GLACIALLY MUSICAL
    • “… a startling command of discontented psychedelic rock from Syd Barrett to Waxwings.” - MILWAUKEE JOURNAL-SENTINEL
