"Max Jaffe is a drummer and composer based in Brooklyn, NY. He is a versatile musician with a particular dedication to the grey areas between established genres. Originally hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area, he began learning how to play drums from his father by the age of 6 and was performing in the Bay Area by the time he was an adolescent. Jaffe descended upon New York City in 2007 to attend the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, where he studied with Amir Ziv, Gerry Hemingway, John Hollenbeck, Jane Ira Bloom, Reggie Workman, and Tyshawn Sorey. After earning his B.F.A., he committed himself to engaging with the thriving and creative musical community in Brooklyn. He is a founding member of JOBS, with whom he composes and sings, as well as plays drums. He has also been fortunate to collaborate and tour with Normal Love, Leverage Models, Unnatural Ways, The Dreebs, Man Forever, Vape Drip, In One Wind, David Wax Museum, Chives, and Steven Lugerner. In addition, he has shared the stage with many talented and respected musicians including Shahzad Ismaily, Aaron Roche, Amir Ziv, Jessica Pavone, Brandon Seabrook, Tim Dahl, Ava Mendoza, Kid Millions, Brandon Lopez, Jordan McLean (Antibalas/FELA! The Musical), Kenny Wollesen, Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), Steve Marion (Delicate Steve), Seth Olinsky (Akron/Family, Cy Dune), and Doug Wieselman, to name but a few. The biggest compliment he's ever received was when some kid told him after a show "That was the most soulful noise music I've ever heard". That was nice."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Afuche is a young band from Brooklyn who feature guitar, piano, baritone sax, bass, drums and vocals. Taking their cues from Can, The Dirty Projectors, Frank Zappa, tUnE-yArDs, King Crimson, James Brown, Tortoise, as well as African and Afro-Cuban music, Afuche take these musical influences and apply and bend it all into a hybrid, original and progressive contemporary rock music that is most of all, fun.

Highly Publicized Digital Boxing Match is Afuche's Cuneiform debut. The album is a showcase of a group whose sound is more than the sum of its parts. Recorded mainly live in the studio with minimal textural overdubs in one day, it is Afuche presenting their compositions with no frills. The fearless intensity in the playing pours through the speakers and you can hear the perfect blend of their individual styles melding to create a unified sound."-Cuneiform
