Gaston is Wilm Thoben, Jan Thoben and Jan Ferdinand. The band comes from Berlin and Hamburg, Germany and creates some wonderfully spread out action through the use of two weaving basses and a tight drumkit plus the detailed and occasional presence of vibes. By travelling through different measures and time signatures every instrument seems to drift apart, but instead of getting lost they find enough space to reach the level of expression needed. The will to avoid complete structured and mathy songs leads them to dynamic and sometimes quite fast bass-melodies, which combined with the great production and sound make #1 an stunning debut. Gaston has played in Germany with bands such as Billy Mahonie and Dianogah, the latter a close reference to their sound. A 7" will be out on Speakerphone in the next few months. Limited to 500 copies. UK import.
