Gentleman Auction House: Alphabet Graveyard

Emergency Umbrella Records [2008]

Fire Drill
Alphabet Graveyard by the Gentleman Auction House is an indie pop record that has great melodies and dabbles into other genres to keep your interest. Everything from folkish ballads to a rhythmic Motown vibe and some reggae tinged let GAH keep you guessing. Overall a fun release that has the same sound as a Bright Eyes or Arcade Fire but with a more upbeat attitude and carefree approach, which lets Alphabet Graveyard just provide what it is - indie bliss!

Key Track:
"Call It Casual"

Band With Similar Fire: Bright Eyes

The Book Of Matches (mp3)
A Good Son (mp3)
