Two Gallants, 'Two Gallants' (Saddle Creek)

Two Gallants
Critical Mass
Label: Saddle Creek

by Barry Walters

These San Franciscans became a YouTube sensation last fall when a Houston police officer responded mid-set to a noise complaint with his Taser buzzing. Dude, they're not that loud. On the duo's third album, Adam Stephens strums and picks folkie electric-guitar chords; for embellishment, there's harmonica. Stephens also possesses an abrasive whine that may not justify electroshock but does flatten the subtleties of his sea-shanty-like tunes. Recalling the stridency of Soul Asylum without the rock ferocity, Two Gallants are a minor annoyance.
