Buke & Gase — Hard Times
“On each of their releases to date, Buke & Gase have never been anything less than absolutely thrilling.”
Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez perform genuine, contradictory, rhythmically dense, melodically driven sonic ear candy with gingerly handled instruments of disproportionate focus onto so for with which one might exclaim “That’s only two people?!” to which the e-cig off-gassing suspicious fumes from the tender edge of another’s lip replies “…Perhaps”. Always accounting for self-sufficiency, they aim to perform each sound live, utilizing multiple limbs to manipulate their sonic space. The self designed instruments referred to in their nom de plume are filtered through some stuff, transforming what was once a regular boring sound into pure Zing, the flavor. The girl sings her heart out; medics will siren their arrival shortly after the final note to replace her throbbing meat-ball with scotch tape and pliers.
