Long regarded as one of the best live acts in NY, Oakley Hall delivers this masterpiece, recorded over several sessions at the Sunset Grill in Brooklyn in late 2005. It's their second full-length of 2006 and first on Brah Records. Springing from 60's west coast legends like the Byrds, the Flying Burrito Bros., the Charlatans, and Moby Grape, adding elements of X, Neu, the Feelies, Mercury Rev, and Fairport Convention, this record finds the group refusing the dictates of stale No-Depression era norms. The sextet's trademark killer songwriting chops boast some beautiful ballads that temper the heavier tunes. All told, "Gypsum Strings" cements Oakley Hall's rep as luminaries of the new psych-roots movement.
