S.F. roots duo Two Gallants are hometown sweethearts for a reason: That naked anguish in Adam Stephens' voice, the monster blues-guitar hooks, and of course, their penchant for getting into trouble (see: Houston, 2006). 

No matter the reason, we've been looking forward to the band's fifth studio album, We Are Undone, out Feb. 3 on ATO, since we heard the title track in November. Built around an anthemic guitar peal and drumming that sounds like Tyson Vogel is trying to break something, it also has hints of a beachy psychedelia — which makes sense considering the album was recorded at Panoramic Studio in Stinson Beach, with Karl Derfler, an engineer who's worked with Tom Waits and the Flamin' Groovies, among others.  

Two Gallants will kick off a world tour following the record's release, starting with a spate of hometown shows: Feb. 5 at Leo's Music Club in Oakland, Feb. 6 at The Chapel, and Feb. 7 at Great American Music Hall. So, see you at one (or more) of those. 

In case you missed it, here's "We Are Undone."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
