BUKE AND GASE - GENERAL DOME (LP)


"Change is good ... when you live in the busiest city in the world, escape can be the mother of invention. It can be said three notable changes led to the new sounds that are encapsulated on General Dome. In 2011, Aron Sanchez moved from New York City to his home in upstate Hudson, NY. Arone Dyer thusly followed, therein marking a large geographical change. They rented a cavernous empty room in between heavily used railroad tracks, warehouses and the Hudson River, and set up a temporary recording studio, a far cry from their previous digs, Aron's tight little basement space. The recordings have hints of their surroundings, such as natural reverb, train horns, rumbling annoyances, and the size of the new space also led to a grander songwriting style. As per usual, they recorded and mixed it themselves. During this time, Aron purchased a myriad of new guitar pedals in his everenduring chase for the "perfect gase sound" which, to this date, he has yet to find. Out with the old and in with the new. A buke creation by their friend now replaces the wooden-toy that formerly occupied Arone's hands. This new "battle axe" is made of steel salvaged from an automobile, with a halved pipe acting as the neck. And so our favorite selfinvented duo returns with General Dome. One track, Hiccup, has already been unleashed, which Pitchfork dubbed a "Best New Track" and calls a "mobilising, bodily cry." (label info)
