Gaston was an early 21st-century Germanmath rock band that, although largely unknown to this day,
were a quite early entry into the realm of math rock/post-rock hybrids. Their sound is superficially jazz fusion-esque, and primarily based around bass guitar and various pitched percussion idiophones, thus foreshadowing the stylings of later groups in the same genre like Tyler Shoemaker, Renaissance Sound, and Monobody.
Although Gaston remains somewhat obscure, their music is nothing short of superb — their compositions are as good as, or better than, any others in the genre.
notes on the distributions
“#1” was ripped from YouTube videos uploaded by DistroKid on behalf
of Becalmed Records, using
youtube-dl -x to rip
the highest-quality audio possible.
“What Time Does Your Train Leave Today?” was offered via a
https://mega.nz/* link in the description of a YouTube video, courtesy of The
Math Rock Collective. The source of these MP3s is ultimately unknown, but they
were probably directly encoded to MP3 from a CD rip. This particular album was
released simultaneously on CD and vinyl by Beau Rivage.
Also, the album art for “#1” found on Discogs was very low-quality, so the “#1” album art given here was obtained as follows:
youtube-dl "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ppV3Yww9pjc" ffmpeg -i "Cargo-ppV3Yww9pjc.mp4" -vf "select=eq(n\,0)" -vframes 1 1.png
