Exclusive Premiere: Buke and Gase “Hiccup”

buke-gase-hiccup

Buke & Gase's new album "General Dome" is in stores today

The unpredictable and inventive duo of Buke and Gase have a new album, “General Dome” out today on Brassland. On the new record, the New York-based group continues their trend of creating some of the most both delicate and magnetic music around, filled with explosive textures and fiery layers built on the unique sounds of the band’s homemade instruments– the buke and gase. Frontwoman Arone Dyer plays buke, a self-modified six-string baritone ukulele and adds an impressive vocal punch, while bandmate Aron Sanchez plays a gase, a guitar-bass hybrid of his own creation – an acoustic body with both guitar and bass strings with separate outputs for each with their own respective effects and amplifiers. Adding to their sound, Sanchez plays a mighty kick drum while Dyer straps bells to her leg. The combination of unexpected instrumentation with selective percussion and soaring, swirling vocals makes for mesmerizing music.

Their song “Hiccup,” which earned the title of best new music from Pitchfork (no small feat) is dynamic and dissonant. The new video, which we are premiering today, is adds to the dizzyingly percussive effect of the song. The track was released in “sympathy” with the Occupy movement on May Day of last year and it’s hard not to imagine people marching along to it.

Watch the video for Buke and Gase’s “Hiccup” and pick up their new album today:
