With a New Album, Buke and Gase Play The Bowery Ballroom

January 29th, 2013

Not only are Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez talented musicians, but they also created the instruments they play as part of their experimental duo, Buke and Gase (formerly Buke and Gass). Dyer, the singer, had “some form of carpel tunnel in my wrist that was aggravated by a normal-size instrument,” so she created her buke by taking “a crappy baritone ukulele” and turning it into a six-string. Not to be outdone, Sanchez’s gase “started out as an over-achieving bass, desiring to move up out of the low end. Now it’s starting to find itself somewhere between a bass and a guitar without really being either.” Despite having just two members, they make a whole lot of noise, which you can discover on their self-titled EP, the 2010 full-length, Riposte, last year’s Function Falls EP and the darker General Dome (stream it below), released today. Watch Buke and Gase, above, playing “Medicina” for Time Out New York, and then go see them play The Bowery Ballroom tomorrow night.

Buke and Gase Play the Late Show at Mercury Lounge Tomorrow

October 11th, 2012

Not only are Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez talented musicians, but they also created the instruments they play as part of their experimental duo, Buke and Gase (formerly Buke and Gass). Dyer, the singer, had “some form of carpel tunnel in my wrist that was aggravated by a normal-size instrument,” so she created her buke by taking “a crappy baritone ukulele” and turning it into a six-string. Not to be outdone, Sanchez’s gase “started out as an over-achieving bass, desiring to move up out of the low end. Now it’s starting to find itself somewhere between a bass and a guitar without really being either.” The current iteration has six strings—four for the guitar and two for the bass. Despite having just two people, this Brooklyn band makes a lot of noise, which you can discover on their self-titled EP, 2010’s full-length, Riposte, and their recently released EP, Function Falls (stream it below). Watch Buke and Gase, above, playing “Your Face Left Before You” for Time Out New York, and go see them play the late show tomorrow night at Mercury Lounge.

Spend Your Saturday with Buke and Gass

December 8th, 2010

Now it’s starting to find itself somewhere between a bass and a guitar without really being either.” The current iteration has six strings—four for the guitar and two for the bass. This Brooklyn band may just have two people, but Buke and Gass (above, playing “Bundletuck”) make a lot of noise, which you can discover on their self-titled EP, this year’s full-length, Riposte, and on Saturday at Mercury Lounge.
