'Oddments of the Gamble' is a continuation of the unique, analogue concoctions that formed the first album - very much like a ‘part two’ in many ways. Although it inevitably draws on a similar formula to the previous LP - pensive loops and melodies, sweeping arpeggios, post-rock jams, and rolling nu-jazz breaks - Oddments of the Gamble still stands alone as another statement from the trio despite originating from the same recording session.
Fresh listeners will encounter the holistic expressiveness of a substantial and beautifully put together album; while existing fans of nonkeen can expect another facet of the band to emerge on this record, one that is distinctively more euphoric than that of the hazier, more brooding prequel.
