Goofus, beware! Two Gallants are hard at work, and for good reason. You see, not only has last year's The Throes (a rollicking indie-blues-folk throat-scraper of a debut) earned the San Francisco duo critical acclaim (we dug it too, for those with a short memory) and totally unjustified comparisons to the White Stripes (there's only two of them, so they must sound like Jack & Meg, right?), but also a sweet record deal with Omaha's finest purveyors of indie rock, Saddle Creek.
The band informed us via e-mail that they have already finished recording the album at Tiny Telephone studios, and are spending a week mixing it with producer Scott Solter. They also saw fit to inform us that the record has been made 100% with analog tape-- no ProTools for them. Rockists!
