“He’s the one who likes all our pretty songs”
The Bloom and The Blight is Two Gallants’ fourth album, following a five years hiatus. Generally, when bands stop playing together for a while, they tend to come back with a mellower record and though we are glad to welcome them back, we still wish they were as powerful and raging as they were in the beginning. Like the last three Dinosaur Jr. records, though, Two Gallants’ latest might well be their roughest to date. Their music is still lively and passionate, as exemplified by the beautiful “My Love Won’t Wait”.
