Buke And Gase Share Title Track Off General Dome, Reveal Cover Art, Announce 2013 Tour Dates

John Cale Announces West Coast Tour with Cass McCombs in Support of Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood

In what is, incredibly, his sixth decade of music-making, John Cale is a tough act to follow, even if you’re the man, himself!

 LISTEN TO “BORROWED TIME” “This record is for the over-socialized victims of the 1990’s ‘you can be anything you want’, Nickelodeon-induced lethargy that ran away from home not out of any wide-eyed big city daydream, but just out of a subconscious return to America’s scandalous origin,” writes Parquet Courts’ songwriter A.

Buke And Gase Announce General Dome, New Full-Length Out January 29th On Brassland

“On each of their releases to date, Buke & Gase have never been anything less than absolutely thrilling.” – Pitchfork   Change is good. Picasso had a “blue period” and then he said “f*&k that” and invented Cubism. Gauguin moved to Tahiti to shed European ideals and dive headlong into Primitivism.
