First, Buke & Gass was on WNYC’s Radiolab. Then, the duo was on WNYC’s Soundcheck. Recently, WNYC’s Culture page previewed the band's upcoming record. Now, the band has finally released its debut album, Riposte. For those who aren’t already Buke & Gass junkies, here's the deal: the duo constructs its own instruments (Bass + Ukelele = Buke; Guitar + Bass = Gass), and uses them to construct gritty, carefully composed songs which both excite and delight.
