Sorry I haven’t been posting as much. I’ve been busy lately… working on my jobby job and getting the new Hopscast ready. I’ve also been listening to the new Bob Dylan album a lot (check out the comments section under the album review for some interesting discussion).
What has helped me get through this draining week (in addition to Diet Coca-Cola and methamphetamines) has been a new album I just got: what the Toll Tells by The Two Gallants.
The band consists of only two guys, yet you’d never know it from their sound (much in the same way you don’t think of the White Stripes as a duo only). They’re music is true

Overall Hops Rating: 4.0 (out of 5)
My Favorite Tracks (with Mp3 links!): Steady Rollin’, Las Cruces Jail and Amber Waves of Grain
Where to Listen: While drinking beers and kicking ass.
Why to buy: It’s rocking American Blues Rock, featuring some real anthems
Why not to buy: Looking for a more electric sound, lose interest in songs quickly; prefer singers who don’t have gritty voices.
And as a bonus here their video of “Steady Rollin’”
