Gauche "A People's History of Gauche" LP (2019)
Details: Gauche's brilliant 2019 debut on Merge Records for their studio album, "A People's History of Gauche," released on black vinyl. New stock, sealed.
Description: Jason P Barnett, Adrienne CN Berry, Mary Jane Regalado, Pearie Sol, and Daniele Yandel aka Gauche find their agency and joy through creating and performing their groove-filled power punk together. They bring us music and movement and struggle and light, and now it is our job to dance!
"Birthed from Washington D.C.’s punk scene like a manifestation of righteous rage, Gauche—which counts as members Priests’ Daniele Yandel, Downtown Boys’ Mary Jane Regalado, and Jason P. Barnett—emerged from the Mid-Atlantic bog in 2015 with a seven-song EP, coupling social commentary and new wave riffs. Four years later, the band debuts their full-length, with six reworked and re-recorded EP tracks plus five new songs that find the band sharpening its sound to a steely point. The studio gloss occasionally smothers, but A People’s History of Gauche is a swamp creature for modern times, a driving and tenacious record that never loses its feral appeal."--Pitchfork
