After a few listens I’ve determined that Gamble House‘s self-titled record is the best Grizzly Bear record of the year. Just kidding … sort of. Their music swells and strains with the same grace and sophistication as those Brooklynites, but without any of the nagging hype. Throw in harmonies like Fleet Foxes and production like Beach House and you’ve got yourself a late entry into the album of the year conversation. Definitely keep an eye on these guys and if you’re in L.A., be sure to check them out during their residency at the Silverlake Lounge.
