"General Dome"

From Buke & Gase's General Dome

BRASSLAND

Liner notes: Is it old-school progressive rock or newfangled art-pop? This head-spinning epic neatly splits the difference, wrapping a cool female voice in fractured noise to riveting effect.

Behind the music: The Brooklyn-based Aron Sanchez and Arone Dyer often play musical instruments of their own devising, among them a modified buke (baritone ukulele) and the gase (a hybrid of guitar and bass).

Check it out if you like: Engaging musical innovators such as tUnE-yArDs, Dirty Projectors, and St. Vincent.
