"The Throes," is, in short, amazing. For those of you looking for something that is original and different from everything else on the radio AND in the indie world right now, this record is perfect for you.

Two Gallants mix a beautiful blend of rock, folk, country, and that certain indescribable something that you can't put your finger on. Their lyrics steep in a kind of tradition and glory that is difficult to capture. Their music pierces right to your heart, mind, and body. Through the course of the album, you will want to dance, smile, and reflect on your life.

Purchase this album immediately. You will not be sorry.

As always the Two Gallants are pretty f_cking keen. It is kind of odd to hear them so well produced. But ya get over it. And the vocals are much more clear so the beautiful lyrics are more able to smack you in the face. If you have a chance, go see them live. It is Classic. If you live in a ditch with internet access in Siberia. Just buy the CD and get drunk and make love to a seal.

Two Gallants is a new band from San Francisco that may be flying under the radar. They need more attention. They may be part of the folk revival in the Bay Area. They are more into country music and Americana. Two Gallants is much like music from another time re-imagined by two guys in their early twenties. They have been wowing audiences for a few years now. Some of their songs of "Nothing To You" have that authoritative voice of records like John Fahey. Two Gallants seem like they are 180 degrees from what is trendy. They are unique and special. They need to be discovered.

Eine illustre Mischung aus Punk, Blues und Ska ergibt den rauhen Folkrock, den die beiden Musiker der Band Two Gallants Adam Stephens (Gesang, Gitarre, Mundharmonika) und Tyson Vogel (Schlagzeug, Gesang) seit einigen Jahren und auf nunmehr 3 Alben präsentieren.

'Geprägt sind die Songs von Stephens rauher Stimme, die der recht minimalistischen Musik, wenn man die Anzahl von max. 3 Instrumenten bedenkt, ihren Charme verleiht.
Die beiden Musiker starteten 2002 in San Francisco ihre Karriere. Ihren ersten Tonträger "The Throws" veröffentlichten sie auf dem Label Alive Records.

Nachdem sie in den frühen Jahren auf der Strasse, in Cafés und Einkaufszentren spielten, unterzeichneten 2005 ihren Vertrag bei Saddle Creek und ließen zwei weiteren Alben, zwei EPs und einige Singles folgen.
Adam und Tyson kenne sich seit ihrer Kindheit, haben schon früh begonnen Musik zu machen. Geprägt hat die Band in frühen Jahren der Lebensstil und die Menschen der Underground Kultur San Franciscos. Den Namen bezog die Band von der gleichnamigen Kurzgeschichte von James Joyce und spielt seit 2002 unter diesem.

Sie haben den Ruf eine gute Live-Band zu sein, auch wenn sie bei ihren Auftritten auf zusätzliche Instrumente (Violine/Cello) verzichten. Leider (ganz persönlicher Eindruck) haben sie bei ihrem letzten Werk (Two Gallants) den wenig galanten Punk-Charme ein wenig unter den Tisch fallen lassen. Nun, sie entwickeln sich weiter und geben an, dass dies ein natürlicher Fortschritt ist. Zumindest schaffen sie es sich nicht zu wiederholen und versuchen nicht, Bestehendes neu aufzukochen. Bleibt abzuwarten, was diese junge Band, deren Fankreis immer mehr wächst, in nächster Zukunft auf den Markt bringt...

Some day in January of 2005, I was working lights at a concert venue called the Vera Project. I wasnt too impressed with most of the bands there... However, The Two Gallants lit the place up. I mean, people were dancing and clapping and having a great time. I was so amazed with the feel of the music that I bought one of their CD's, The Throes. It was basically my prized possesion until it was unfortunately stolen. Im currently saving my funds to buy both of their CD's. Deffinately Lovin' It.
