Gallant Ology

And two tracks from the kid who might be the new Maxwell, Gallant. “Weight In Gold” and “Open Up” are both from his excellent just-released (this past Friday, I believe) debut album, Ology. Don’t sleep on this album, it could be a contender (along with 6 others already) for a slot on my Year End List.


FADER invites you to meet Gallant. [via]
