Sven B. Schreiber I've got a soft spot for trip hop - especially if it's done in such a brilliant way as on this album. Several times, "Gauche" deviate substantially from the standard trip hop pattern, making the "Siesta Cinema" suite a steady delight from beginning to end. Favorite track: Scene Three: The Sweet Pursuit.

Art As Catharsis are proud to re-release Gauche’s second full length album, 'Siesta Cinema' - the culmination of this incredibly creative and original group.

"Influences from Bjork, Portishead, Aphex Twin and Cinematic Orchestra are highly evident. The level of talent here is impressive, with an equal amount of the spotlight having been given to all involved. "

Gauche were a Sydney-based experimental band that existed between 2001 and 2007. Art As Catharsis are re-releasing their back catalog as part of an effort to conserve important recordings in Australia’s experimental music history.

The 5 members of Gauche hail from radically different musical backgrounds, from jazz, gypsy, classical, hip hop, circus and beyond, and the diversity and talent in Gauche has created a unique new sound in Australian music Gauche's latest album "Siesta Cinema" reinforces why they have been described as one of Sydney’s most original, brave and genre-defying bands.
