Buke and Gase (formerly Buke and Gass) is a Brooklyn-based musical duo. Band members Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez are noted for their use of handmade instruments such as the "toe-bourine;" the "buke," a six-string former-baritone ukulele; and the "gase," a guitar-bass hybrid.
Dyer and Sanchez had formerly been bandmates in the post-punk noise group Hominid. The two started playing together in earnest late 2007, and recorded their first EP "+/-" in 2008. They were signed to Brassland Records after Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National saw them playing a basement venue. In 2009, they were featured on the NPR science program Radiolab and shortly thereafter, recorded their first full-length album "Riposte" for which they toured extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe. In 2012 they released their second EP "Function Falls." Their second full length "General Dome" was released in January 2013.
