    Buke and Gass

    This Brooklyn-based duo mixes wild, propulsive musical experimentation with customized homemade gear -- heavy-duty amps, a kick-drum with noisemakers, a "toe-bourine," and the modified baritone ukulele and guitar-bass hybrid that inspired their name -- to make a huge, joyful, metal- and prog-rock-infused sound. Their album Riposte landed on NPR Music's list of 50 Favorite Albums of 2010, and they’re easily one of the most...

    This Brooklyn-based duo mixes wild, propulsive musical experimentation with customized homemade gear -- heavy-duty amps, a kick-drum with noisemakers, a "toe-bourine," and the modified baritone ukulele and guitar-bass hybrid that inspired their name -- to make a huge, joyful, metal- and prog-rock-infused sound. Their album Riposte landed on NPR Music's list of 50 Favorite Albums of 2010, and they’re easily one of the most original and unpredictable live bands you will ever see. "Every now and again you’ll hear or see a band that stops you dead in your tracks, whose music and performance elicits either a blissed-out “whoa,” or an amped-up “holy sh*t.” Buke and Gass is one such of these bands." --Jezebel Music
