Buke and Gase, the inventive duo of Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez, are back with a new album following last year’s Scholars. Entitled A Record of… , the album is a collaboration with contemporary percussion ensemble So Percussion, and saw the two groups work together in a 300-year-old house in Hudson, NY. A Record of… is set for release on January 29th through Brassland and they have already let loose its opening track, ‘Diazepam’.” Dyer comments about it:
“Diazepam” is a deep dive into my psyche and you’ll find this cycling — a reminder not to look to others to keep my sanity or pose, and that sometimes being chemically altered is the only welcome thing that will break the spell of obsessive self-doubt. It can be read as a response to this very stressful year (or 4), or a reminder to hug yourself, which has always been a contrivation to me. “Hug myself?” …Yeah. The way you’d hug the person or animal or item you feel most protected by, and the most protection for. It can be a gentle, loving embrace to the ears and nothing more.”
