Buke and Gase
"On each of their releases to date, Buke & Gase have never been
anything less than absolutely thrilling." - Pitchfork
Brooklyn-based BUKE (byook) and GASE (gace) are Arone Dyer on the "buke" (a self-modified six-string former baritone ukulele) and Aron Sanchez on the "gass" (a guitar-bass hybrid of his own creation). Both of them play double duty, also mobilizing a small army of foot percussion. These instruments are then filtered through various pedals, amplifiers and homemade inventions to create a surprisingly complex sound. Dyer's supermelodic vocal lines weave through the beautiful yet unwieldy musical matter, balancing light and dark, calamity and control. Their musical multi-tasking makes for live shows that are visually unexpected and sonically explosive.

Riposte is the debut album of Buke & Gase. Their music is loud yet folky, polyrhythmic yet melodic. DustedMagazine.com called them part of a tradition where "the avant-garde, the handcrafted, the anti-authoritarian" overlap -- yet they have have received unbelievable amounts of love & support from the classical music community and press outlets like NPR (Tiny Desk Concert, All Things Considered, several best of the year lists) and The New York Times. The best of both worlds, Buke & Gase are spiky and accessible.
