The Mus-o-meter registers Buke and Gass's 'Riposte'

Aron Sanchez and Arone Dyer’s latest project, Buke and Gass, has put these veteran musicians on the map. A lot of sound manages to come from these two tiny people, thanks to their employment of foot percussion and homemade instruments (hear them live this Saturday at Silent Barn). But to really get a sense of what it’s all about, we leave that up to the math of the Mus-o-meter.

Take the prog-rock of Fugazi’s 1991 debut, “Repeater.” Then add …

The folk-psych tendencies of Akron/Family’s 2007 album, “Love is Simple.” Then add …

The mesmerizing, hypermelodic vocals by Karen O. on the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ 2004 debut, “Fever to Tell.” The result?

Buke and Gass’s debut full-length, “Riposte.”
