TWO GALLANTS
TWO GALLANTS
Alternately explosive and restrained, the aptly titled The Bloom and the Blight is a meditation on past and present - melodic fury matched with the eloquent, confessional lyricism that has made Two Gallants an enduring favorite of both fans and critics.

Capturing the sound of a new beginning, the duo's ATO Records debut The Bloom and the Blight celebrates the band’s much anticipated reunion following a multi-year break. It is the work of Two Gallants, fully matured, the band fearlessly exploring new ground in search of a sound that defines a very personal catharsis.

The new disc includes everything from the distorted ferocity of “Halcyon Days” to the heart-wrenching acoustic ballad, “Sunday Souvenirs." Songs like “Ride Away” boast all the prowling, anthemic strut of classic metal; while tracks like “Winter’s Youth” start sweet and sad, than shatter into huge and heavy choruses. The album's first single, "Broken Eyes," has already become a crowd favorite with its raw, aching harmonies and weeping harmonica.

The bands' very first single, "Nothing to You" (from their 2004 debut The Throes), started off a string of cult classics that helped define their signature sound. The success of the sophomore album, What the Toll Tells (2006), delivered a few more singles, including “Steady Rollin’” and “Las Cruces Jail”. The wistful “Seems Like Home to Me” from The Scenery of Farewell EP (2007) and “Despite What You’ve Been Told” from 2007’s self-titled album, provide the framework of the bands development into The Bloom and the Blight.
Future Twin
Future Twin
Psych Farmageddon band, Future Twin, was brought together by the first all girl moped gang in San Francisco, The Lockits. They became fast friends and were soon waxing synth songs, huffing gasoline and makeing shred tents (the 'e' stands for everyone.) Since then situations have transpired, people were motivated to get up or get out, landslides shifted the conceptual mindscape…but adaptive by design this pirate ship just keeps sailing. We design our lives towards who we want to be, becoming our own future twin.

"With influences such as Brian Eno, Ganglians, and the Atler Set, Future Twin has taken on a sound very similar to mid-period Sonic Youth and reminiscent of the famous psychedelic bands of the ‘60s that came out of the very same area. (Quite successfully, we might add)." --InYourSpeakers
