with Conditioner Disco Group, All Hits
On July 12, Washington, DCs Gauche will release A Peoples History of Gauche, a collective catharsis of anger, frustration, and trauma through creativity. Jason P Barnett, Adrienne CN Berry, Mary Jane Regalado, Pearie Sol, and Daniele Yandel fi nd their agency and joy through creating and performing music together in 36 minutes of groove-fi lled power punk.When asked about the genesis of the title of their Merge debut, Daniele cited this defi nition: A peoples history, or history from below, is an account of events from the perspective of common people rather than leaders, the story of mass movements and of outsiders. Its a fitting title for an album that tackles such heavy topics as anxiety, capitalism and colonialization, and healing ancestral traumas, as well as dismantling and dissecting patriarchy, creating beauty in the face of oppressive forces, and resisting exploitation. These are vital songs manifested in a celebratory manner, created quickly through the groups self-proclaimed Gauche magic.Recorded with Austin Brown (Parquet Courts) and Robert Szmurlo in Brooklyn, NY, and with Jonah Takagi (Ex Hex) in DC, A Peoples History of Gauche marks the first time the band worked with people outside of their ranks, resulting in a fuller sound that boasts more intricate instrumentation. From the very first line of album opener FlashLights supposed to show the way, not overexpose itGauche are here to compel us to dance while singing along about societys universal struggles. Gauche undoubtedly make art, but their guiding tenet is craft. When I say that, I mean in the sense that Artwith a capital A is thought of as something rarefied, something outside the context of everyday life, outside of everyones grasp or potential, expounds Daniele. That sense of craft, of something you return to every day and is valuable because it is something you share in common with all people, is how I think of music. Well, good music at least.Gauche bring us music and movement and struggle and light, and now it is our job to dance!
