Ash Black Bufflo - Andasol

An interview with Ash Black Bufflo regarding Andasol: 

KFR: What is Andasol about?

ABB: Wow, right off the bat. Uh, it’s about a lot of things, but mostly about cursedness. And violence. Violence to yourself and others. Ghosts—personal and from a ways back. There’s redemption in there too, somewhere.

KFR: Wonderful. How long did it take?

ABB: Five years.

KFR: That’s a long time. It’s a long album too. 

ABB: Yeah, well…

KFR: There’s a lot of different styles on Andasol. Why not settle for one and get it right?

ABB: I wanted to cover a lot of range…what didn’t I get right?

KFR: Do you think living in Portland has done anything for you or for the album?

ABB: The rain makes you stay inside and work. Other than that, playing in good bands over the years—Dolorean, Grails, Holy Sons, the Standard—has helped a lot. Good friends and good musicians all around. 

KFR: What artists would you reference in regards to Andasol?

ABB: That’s a good question…

KFR: Because I could come up with some obvious names.

ABB: I feel like you’re being confrontational.

KFR: I just want to understand the album.

ABB: Why don’t I offer up some names instead? 

KFR: Of course.

ABB: (unintelligible) 

KFR: Pardon?

ABB: For sure there’s some Brian Eno in there. Some Moondog. William Goyen. Peter Garland. Uh…Mason Williams. I sound like a jerk. Uh, Arnold Dreyblatt. Arvo Part. Some poor man’s west coast minimalism. I sound like an idiot. You’re making me sound like an idiot. (laughs) 

KFR: I knew one name on that list and I don’t like his music at all.

ABB: Well, there you go.

KFR: Best of luck to you! I’m sure the album will do wonderfully.

ABB: (unprintable)
