What year did Ben Becker hop in a time machine and set the dial for 2010? I’m guessing somewhere between 1968 and 1974. Hopefully we’ll get an answer to that question tomorrow when Gamble House records their Donewaiting “Live at Electraplay” session a few hours before hitting The Basement stage as the opening act for Rogue Wave.
Gamble House’s self-titled CD was released in May and there hasn’t been a single review of the CD that doesn’t reference Grizzly Bear as a comparison. I’m admittedly not that familiar with Grizzly Bear so I don’t hear the similarities but if it’s a fair comparison, I’m going to have to spend more time investigating the Grizzly Bear catalog as the Gamble House CD has been on heavy iPod rotation this week. Check it out for yourself and familiarize yourself with the music before heading to The Basement.
