Buke and Gase
Buke and Gase
Buke and Gase is Arone Dyer and Aron Sanchez. We are based in Hudson, NY, and are having a lovely time.

Another Dyer Dream:
murderous rampage inside an orphanage
a young boy built a pair of wooden airships to help him fly out the skylights.
men after him: he was me; i was him.
it failed the first time and he'd lost one of the planes; several toothpicks raced to the floor.
but then it worked, i think.
meanwhile, deep in the beige orthodox ghetto,
the madame went to hunt me down
and i glimpsed her using a wine merchants bag to conceal a gun
while she shot someone else point blank.
inventions, inventors
wacky seeming situations
i slept well enough last night without sleeping pills
so i'm happy about that.
deprivation has its positive side,
and i'm going to withhold my opinion of it.
The Californian drought is shaking his finger at my multiple showers throughout a day;
although they have their reasons.

After multiple line-up changes Banned Books is Matt Dermond, April Heliotis and Zane Kanevsky. The trio uses traditional rock instrumentation to create tapestries woven from phrases that appear to span the history of music from classical to punk to noise. Having spent the past five years touring extensively and releasing a handful of EPs and singles, the band is looking forward to hit the studio this December to record their first proper full-length.
Palm is four-piece band from upstate New York. Founded as a trio in 2011, the first songs were all instrumental and focused on the interplay between Kasra Kurt's and Eve Alpert's thick, mechanical guitar parts against Hugo Stanley's sparse, loose drum phrases. The band has refined its sound over the last few years with the addition of Gerasimos Livitsanos on bass, but retains a compositional focus on detail, density, and heaviness. The songs are experiments that playfully handle aspects of music you might recognize, with a palette of sound informed by punk, metal and noise as well as jazz, bossa nova, etc. Palm trashes the listeners expectations with moments of dissonance that are reigned in and precise; by comparison the pretty moments are often where the chaos is. And amid these constant and rapid changes, the band sneaks in a deeper unrelenting repetition. The contradiction makes sense. 

“If Sonic Youth had produced a Stereolab album in 1997, it might have sounded a little like […] these recent alums from upstate New York’s Bard College.”
Rolling Stone

"The band churns jazzy dissonance with raw brawn, transitioning in and out of the beautiful and bestial in perpetual progression.”
Tiny Mix Tapes

"Proving that excess is not necessarily a negative quality, Palm employs a wide variety of sounds, effortlessly thwarting any attempts to  pigeonhole the group into a single genre.”
Impose Magazine 

"Palm, for lack of a more apt description of what they do,  play the sort of mathematical experimental rock that downright enchants.”
