Drawing inspiration from diverse currents of alternative rock and electronic music, Matthew Dear is a true original. During his recent visit to the KCRW studios, he talked about trying to follow a more straightforward path, but "this is just what comes out." Good news, because it's a fresh and exciting dance-rock fusion.

I first found the music of Gashcat buried among 2,000 other songs in a playlist NPR Music editor Stephen Thompson put together to help us prepare for South By Southwest earlier this year. I assumed I wouldn't like them and only listened because I thought the name was ridiculous. Gashcat. What does that even mean?
