Think the Pogues, but less rowdy and more angst. You'll be hard pressed to find a more real and honest pair than singer/guitarist Adam Stephens and drummer Tyson Vogel. -NME Vinyl re-issues of all three Saddle Creek releases, a stretch that saw the band "racking up enough accolades, gigs and releases to keep five gallants busy" (Pitchfork). Standard weight vinyl, with each containing codes for free mp3 download of the full record, and "What The Toll Tells" including vinyl-only bonus tracks. In a style that allows for little flourish and where every element has stark purpose, two voices, guitars, drums, and a harmonica make up the sound of Two Gallants. Overdubs and guest musicians are kept to an effective minimum. With that lean arrangement, the band reveals a thousand tales, a dizzying timelessness, and a potent range of emotions. Two Gallants rambled thousands of miles, across counties and continents, to make what the toll tells. Their sophomore album swells with the kind of world-weary storytelling and musical dexterity that arises from travel, loss, and triumph coupled with an unusual affection for literature and legend. But it all starts and ends with their home, the city streets of San Francisco.
