Buke and Gase is the duo of Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez. Dyer plays the "Buke," a heavily modified electric baritone ukulele, as Sanchez wields a "Gase," a hybrid guitar and bass. Thankfully, when the duo moves from making instruments to making music, the gear proves a means, not an end. Dyer's voice shares a spectral quality with that of Imogen Heap, proving an able complement to the off-kilter rhythmic prod and melodic pulse that the duo draws from its instruments and its influences. Search for Deerhoof's eccentricity and Ariel Pink's playfulness, and you might stumble across Buke and Gass. With Morgan's End. —Bryan C. Reed.
