Product Description

Brooklyn-based BUKE and GASS are Arone Dyer on the "buke" (a six-string baritone ukulele) and Aron Sanchez on the "gass" (a guitar-bass hybrid). Both members also mobilize a small army of foot percussion, filtering the result through various pedals, amplifiers and homemade inventions while Arone's supermelodic vocal lines weave through the beautiful yet unwieldy musical matter. It's a surprisingly complex sound for two people and all the invention and musical multi-tasking makes for live shows that are visually unexpected and sonically explosive, balancing light and dark, calamity and control

Review

Weird, catchy, dense songs on homemade instruments... You hear Beth Ditto for a second (one who races/fixes bikes and builds her own instruments, doesn t hang out at fashion shows), Kathleen Hannah in those Bikini Kill days, Throwing Muses, something else, etc., an overall joy. --Stereogum

I had forgotten what it was like to be genuinely excited about a band until I heard these folks play. The songs are intense, energetic, dissonant and very powerful. Equal amounts heart on sleeve and tongue in cheek in a radiohead sort of way (I'm talking mood, not surface aesthetics). In addition, it's a very interesting sound combining homemade instruments, homemade amps and homemade recording. Seriously, how much more DIY can you get? Go see them live if you can. They'll melt your face off.

I fell in love with these guys when I heard them on some NPR piece (Radiolab? Planet Money?). I especially liked the Medulla Oblongata song, which I downloaded for free. I just purchased the album and it is just as good as I was hoping it would be. I love their usual sound and the haunting voice of the female singer. Great stuff, I am so glad to have purched this.

I've known Erin, the singer, since she was born. And since her Dad is still a good friend, I have most of her earlier work on CD's. Believe me, she is one TALENTED woman! I admit it's hard for me to totally understand the directions her muse takes her, but just listen to the samples here on Amazon and you will hear the freshness and raw beauty of unexplored musical territory. For those who want visuals, try the usual site. But before you do, buy this CD! And then buy one for a friend or a teenager, so they can be challenged to break free of the Pop mold.

...where have these guys been?! I just now sampled their brilliant music on an NPR and am instantly nabbed!!! I'm downloading the MP3s as I type this. Didn't know new music that was actually fun, interesting, unpredictable, rhythmically exciting and... GOOD... occurred anymore! I've never heard a more avant-garde female (Arone Dyer) who plays music with teeth. And, she is really hot (but that's beside the point; I listen with ears, not eyes). Aron Sanchez plays a bass/guitar hybrid to great affect.

I will be following Buke And Gass. My admonition is that they continue to explore while the energy/desire to do so remains. Crank it out!!! And, while you're creating amazing music, know that there are many people like me who "get it" and absorb every note whilst stomping my feet!

I normally don't take the time to do these reviews. However, when I saw these two play 'an in the office' mini concert at the NPR offices in Washington, DC. Well, I was interested enough to purchase this CD. I am so glad that glad I did. The sound coming from these two is just simply awesome. I like almost every single track on this CD and that doesn't happen very often! Now I want to go see them in person! Listen to the samples and if you think you like what you hear, buy it.

This record is so far out. Sound clips don't do it justice at all. You're cruising along though some angular thicket of rhythm and suddenly some mammoth hook explodes and mauls you to happy tears. I keep coming back to this recording. Wears very well.
