“Those Darlins have mouths on them, yes they do. But their mouths are connected to their hearts and minds, and amped by loud guitars” – ROBERT CHRISTGAU A-, NPR’s ALL THING CONSIDERED
Matthew Daniel Siskin began writing songs as Gambles in August 2012 with no goal or motive other than the past few years needed addressing, and things that had gone unsaid for too long needed saying.
"Trust" the first song released publicly, came together quickly and spontaneously between friends. Nicolas Vernhes and Matthew (long time close friends & collaborators) were enjoying a late night at the Rare Book Room where Vernhes keeps a recording studio, label, and home. Towards the end of the evening the two ended up downstairs in the studio where "Trust" was sang in a single take, and with no words written.
"I think I just needed to say all of those things in that way, and it sort of just happened – and there is nobody else I trust as much as Nico, besides myself, to be in the right place, to say them"
"Trust was just the beginning – I think a new process for me began that night, and I realized I didn't need to sit down and really think about it too hard, it just had to happen. there's about 20 or so other songs which came together a lot like that. it's all stuff I've lived, a lot of it is pretty hard to hear played back – but that sort of told me I was going in the right direction."
Gambles is the end of a process and of many processes, the end of choices and the removal of style, the end of endlessness and self-doubt.
Gambles is music and people, boiled down, pressed dry, sliced thin, and left to dry. Yet it's clear that for Matthew, Gambles is also everything, a life-saving perspective into events that demand to be acknowledged, registered, declared and when ready, left.
Remember Sabbath, Atomic Rooster and the Metallica that brought you Kill ‘Em All? You remember that sound? It’s called hard rock and Hound are bringing it back!
The trio, comprised of Perry Shall, Chris Wilson (Ted Leo and the Pharmacists) and Colin McGinniss (None More Black), is releasing their debut album, Out of Time, on SRA Records on November 28th.
Since 2011 Hound has given Philadelphians a reason to grow their hair long and put their jean jackets on, and now they’re unleashing their heavy riffs on the rest of the world. So make room on that record shelf, clear some space in the gray matter between your ears and turn it up!
