We don’t post much to Tumblr because we have busy lives in the real world and, you know, we do a pretty good job at Twittering & Facebooking. But we wanted to enter Tumblrspace for a moment to tell you we’re streaming The Gloaming’s whole album to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, and you should take this chance to listen. We just released it a month ago and think it’s amazing.
PS - You can follow the band’s Tumblr here > thegloamingofficial
We’re not sure they use theirs all that much either.
Very experimental? C’mon now! Very groovy is more like it!
Buke and Gase is a (very) experimental duo from Brooklyn, composed of Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez. Arone plays the buke (a baritone ukulele) while Aron plays the gase (crossbreed of a guitar and bass), instruments which they themselves invented. Their music live was absorbing. It’s so unpredictable and organic that you’d want to hear more and more of it.

We’re going to offer neither a translation nor much context in this reblog, but we do wonder if buke-and-gase know how to say “Jetlag” in Japanese now?
Oh, ok, we give up, here’s the context part > http://www.brassland.org/news.php?story=363
Decent visual effects #bukeandgaseinasia
