Buke and Gase’s General Dome Out Today, Watch Video For “Hiccup”

Buke and Gase’s new album, General Dome, is out today on Brassland, and the band is revealing a curious new video for their song “Hiccup.” Premiered today on IFC Fix, the video is a dizzying trip ’round the wheel. Perceptions are muddled, scrambled, disassembled, and repurposed as images we are familiar with transfigure into new ones.

In addition to this new video, the entire album is up and streaming on NPR Music’s popular “First Listen” series. Stephen Thompson says the band “captures the sound of restless minds as they revel in the joy and surprise of creation. Without overtly evoking celebration, there’s an air of delight in every tiny sonic bombshell, as Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez maneuver their homemade instruments through songs that rumble and clamor and grind with unmistakable electricity.”
