For a certain time of my life this meant: “go camping with them." Really. If you go camping with a group of people, you will find out a lot about them in a ...

Gutbucket è un quartetto statunitense che gioca a nascondino con i generi musicali, rubando una procedura a Frank Zappa, due percorsi minati al Microscopic Septet, tre colorazioni rilucenti ai Lounge Lizards.

Gutbucket: Cascades and Collisions

Read "Gutbucket: Cascades and Collisions" reviewed by Gordon Marshall

Over its 12-year career, Gutbucket has resituated its various musical parts like the pieces of a Rubik's cube. The elements of that cube, the sonic strains, have remained similar--an amalgam of fuzz rock, jumpy jazz, post-serial classicism--but its panoply of shifting color has been redeployed in unique ways on each of the Brooklyn-based quartet's five CDs, ...
