Matthew Daniel Diskin, aka Gambles, made an impression on me with his Far From Your Arms EP as his voice instantly pulled me in. The singer/songwriter has announced he has put the finishing touches on his debut full length Trust, which will release on October 1st. Check out the track “So I Cry Out” from the album below. Gambles will head out on some European and North American tour dates this fall, check out the list below. I’m excited to hear the rest of Trust, and plan on trying to catch Gambles’ live when he stops by the Baltimore/DC area.

Gambles is proud to announce his debut LP, Trust, which is due on October 1st via his own GMBLS imprint. To celebrate he is sharing a new song entitled “So I Cry Out”, it can be heard on soundcloud or at Stereogum alongside an interview. Gambles will tour in Europe and North America this fall alongside artists such as Jagwar Ma and Those Darlins.

Matthew Daniel Siskin began writing songs as Gambles in August 2012 with no goal or motive other than that the past few years needed addressing, and things that had gone unsaid for too long needed saying. The first song he released publicly was sang in a single take at the Rare Book Room with no words written. That was “Trust,” the first song he would post on his tumblr and the same song that Pitchfork somehow found only a few weeks later and presented to the world. Gambles later returned to the Rare Book Room to record the Far From Your Arms EP, which was released via his very own GMBLS imprint distributed by Secretly Canadian. Gambles is now prepared to release his debut long-player Trust on October 1st via GMBLS.

Gambles is music and people, boiled down, sliced thin, and left to dry; yet it’s clear that for Matthew, it’s also everything, a life-saving perspective into events that demand to be acknowledged, registered, declared and when ready, left.
