BUKE & GASS ANNOUNCE DECEMBER TOUR & RELEASE VIDEO FOR “PAGE BREAK” NEW ALBUM, RIPOSTE, OUT NOW ON BRASSLAND

Buke & Gass are at it again! After the release of their debut album, Riposte, the duo played WNYC’s “Soundcheck”, then hit the road on a month-long nationwide tour with Efterklang, played Pop Montreal and CMJ, and now are gearing up to take their inventive, polyrhythmic and deceptively melodic show back on the road. These two and their impressively full sound are sure to blow you away! As each week passes, they gain more and more very-much deserved attention. We urge you to give them a shot and see what all the fuss is about!


As if Buke & Gass weren’t resourceful enough (who else out there makes ALL of their own instruments?!), Arone Dyer & Aron Sanchez have made a video for “Page Break”, a song off of Riposte. In regards to the new video, Arone has this to say: “Intentions are best left at the base of one’s backbone, unless heeding to impulses actually gets one somewhere, in which case, trouble might arise and one must be prepared with ones pants belted tightly.” Hmmmm.

“Gorgeously clattering. . . “ – VillageVoice.com

“kinda dying to see Buke and Gass live” — @sfj (Sasha Frere-Jones via Twitter)

“It’s a showcase of both deft multi-tasking and distinctive songwriting that’s just bizarre enough to crack the shell of your calcified mind.” – SF Weekly

“OMFG, Buke & Gass blew me away tonight.” — @michaelazerrad (Michael Azzerad via Twitter)

“. . . each work their mutant string creations while simultaneously kicking away at a smorgasbord of percussion and effects pedals. Think two Mark Sultans at once, with good-timey rock vibes replaced by art-damaged intricacy.” — Flavorpill

“It’s this year’s most exhilarating illustration of the way proggy ambition and indie-style rawness are commingling to create a new art-rock benchmark. If Buke and Gass’s instruments are merely odd, the sounds they produce are downright magical.” – Time Out New York

“Buke & Gass use odd but effective pacing and homemade instrumentation over which Arone Dyer’s more traditional vocals bring the songs back to reality to be marveled at.” – KEXP blog

“Buke and Gass’ inspired, melodically rich avant-pop threatens to turn an otherwise memorable night into the stuff of legend.” – Minneapolis Star Tribune

“The Brooklyn duo offers fascinatingly earnest and often ecstatic prog-tastic pop experiments on homemade hybrid instruments.” – Time Out Chicago

“. . . the results are positively arresting.” – Pitchfork

“. . . a piquantly pointy-headed pop played on homemade hybrid instruments, spiced with loping African polyrhythms and other odd meters. B&G’s happily lopsided ‘song’ structures are custom-designed to encourage deep-in-though chin-stroking even on the dance floor.” – LA Weekly

“. . . gritty, carefully composed songs which both excite and delight.” – WNYC Culture

“. . . it stands as proof that the marriage of ingenuity, aggression and a push toward musical bliss can still yield unexpected results.” – Dusted
