Sounding something like Johnny Cash fronting Sonic Youth or Smog's Bill Callahan holding his own in front of Dinosaur Jr, anyone who loves exciting and intelligent rock music will find something to love in the repertoire of Smallgang. The band have just recorded their 2nd album and it is being mixed as we speak. Early listens would suggest a HIT!
“Smallgang have pop sensibilities with a forlorn twist. If you’re a regular All Tomorrows Parties punter then this slice of melancholy pop is for you” Artrocker
"gloriously falling somewhere between Regeneration-era The Divine Comedy and Stephen Malkmus at his most post-punk." God Is In The TV
Riff-Tastic Post-Doom/Prog-Folk from Damo Suzuki's loudest backing band, that recently super-rocked with Stinking Lizaveta @ the now defunct Barden’s Boudoir. RIP!
Alt-Folk/Post Punk Duo from East Seoul and East London. Who between them have Gigged with Steve Malkmus, Shonen Knife, Afrirampo, Thee More Shallows and sound like "Smog on holiday in Shellac" DIS
