Hitting their stride (and the record-buying public) with not one, but two, albums this year is Brooklyn’s Oakley Hall. The latter of the two, Gypsum Strings, sees the psych-country-rock monsters burning through another set of experimental gothica, beginning with the shit-hot guitar lead on the album’s opener “Confidence Man.” Continuing in the same vein as it’s predecessor, Second Guessing, Gypsum could be thought of as part II — hell, call it the second half of a double album. And to my ears, this is good thing. See what I mean below, and also check out this link to the exclusive Daytrotter Sessions the band did.
