Approved: Buke And Gase – Hard Times

CMU Approved

Buke And Gase

As Hurricane Sandy’s after-effects are still being keenly felt, not least in New York, NYC citizens Aron Sanchez and Arone Dyer – whose “cannibalised” baritone ukelele and guitar-bass amalgam gives them the Buke And Gase name – are releasing new single ‘Hard Times’ in aid of charity, giving all profits to a post-Sandy regeneration initiative in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

A track set to feature on Buke And Gase’s debut LP ‘General Dome’, ‘Hard Times’ is backed by the band’s bare, clean-lined variant of New Order’s ‘Blue Monday’ (also part of B&G’s September-released digital EP ‘Function Falls’). Meanwhile, Buke And Gase have also been chosen for Shellac’s ATP on 30 Nov, and will play across Deerhoof’s four date tour in December.
