RIVERBOAT GAMBLERS: Smash/Grab: CDEP

Sep 23, 2011

Way back when I wrote a review of Riverboat Gamblers’ last full length album Underneath the Owl, I was frustrated at what I saw as a departure from the sound of their previous record. Heeding the advice once given to me by our own Todd Taylor in a similar matter, I kept listening and listening... And it turned into one of my favorite Gamblers records. So here we are with a new EP worth of Gamblers material and they’ve changed it up a little bit again. The four songs here have got an amazing blend of what was going on in the last two LPs as well as a heaving slap of the balls-out rock-punk that was turning heads on their debut and Something to Crow About. Look out kids, the Gamblers have found the sweet spot! Can’t wait for more!
