"Gauche Gists is ultimately a mix of sounds, heavy, abrasive, yet atmospheric and oddly melodic. Dumb Waiter takes the avant-garde and runs with it madly and wildly. The bass thumps; the drums pound, and the saxophone screams, and into the world a totally new style of music is
born, fresh but poised to eat itself."
- New Noise Magazine
“This is a band that isn’t pushing the envelope so much as they’re shoving it right over the side of a goddamn cliff. If you’re tired of the same old same old, then Dumb Waiter absolutely MUST be on your radar.”
"Richmond, Virginia instrumental noise/experimental/math rock freakies Dumb Waiter are no stranger to the weird. But on their fourth album, Tsk, the band has only dived deeper into the strange, and they’ve done so by playing things a bit more straight. I mean, if that’s confusing, sure, welcome to the world of Dumb Waiter."

“Dumb Waiter is the absolutely weird-as-shit mathy riff fest that you need in your life today.”
— Metal Injection
“...these four horsemen combine their own experiences and insights for improvisational aesthetics that pushes and encourages the elaboration and expansion of one another’s own artistic sensibilities (not to mention the hosts of potentially latent creative possibilities previously untapped until now).
