    Pitchfork says: http://pitchfork.com/reviews/tracks/14593-general-dome/

    "On their forthcoming album, General Dome, Hudson-based duo Buke and Gase have gone deeper and darker lyrically than we've heard from them before, dealing in twisted images that are rarely what they seem. The record's nervy, aggressive title track begins with Arone Dyer ominously describing how she '[carries] a crest of weight chest dense with general doom/ I awoke to find this as my vital sense.' She goes on to declare herself, "Not the last pawn with a gun," and 'a force to be decreed,' but it's a given that there's more to her message than crude violence.

    "It makes perfect sense that Dyer and her bandmate, Aron Sanchez, chose to unveil the record's artwork with 'General Dome'-- a piece inspired by a Sol LeWitt exhibition that Dyer caught at New York's Dia Beacon gallery, in which the two have created a new graphical, coded alphabet with which to create cryptic messages. Obviously, it's no basic A-Z; the band will post the key to uncode the messages on their website closer to the record's release."
