Strummed Balladry from Gambles
I’m a sucker for a man and his guitar, and that’s exactly what Matthew Siskin and his project Gambles has given me. Not only that, but I’m really enjoying his knack for word wizardry. Very few people can come across as affecting and honest as Siskin does in this new single, and my only complaint is there isn’t more to absorb. Even scrolling through his web site, I can’t help but be drawn to the aesthetic he’s putting forward. A bit of craft and poetry, and possibly a bit of hidden mystery. Sounds like it’s right up my alley, so I can’t wait to see him in February here in Austin.
