In case you missed it, last Sunday St. Louis’ very own Gentleman Auction House performed a set on the air in the KWUR stacks. The band braved a torrential downpour, cramped into our tiny studio, and busted out five songs, including a brand new track! Full disclosure: the session was controlled chaos at best, but I had a hell of a lot of fun, GAH were amazing to work with, and the recording is one of our best yet.

The interview is here.

BONUS ::: Check out this incredibly amazing picture from the in-studio (taken by Stephen Tomko). Sorry for all of the megaupload links (I know it blows) – we’ll be switching over to WordPress soon and they’ll be gone forever! But seriously, snatch that photo, it rules.

Gentleman Auction House – The Book of Matches

Saturday, February 23rd, 2008

Fantastic indie pop from…here! Reminds me of a St. Louis version of Bishop Allen. A ridiculously catchy EP released in anticipation of the full length, Alphabet Graveyard, this includes 2 songs from the album (I’m guessing it’s “ABCDEFGraveyard” and “The Book of Matches”, but I really don’t know), a b-side, and 2 unreleased tracks. It’s pretty much impossible to get “The Book of Matches” out of your head, which overshadows the greatness of “ABCDEFGraveyard” right before it, and the appropriately titled closer, “A Parting Shot”, is beautiful and leaves a lasting impression.
Check Gentleman Auction House out now. It wont be much longer until everyone else has.
