Indie/Roots/Folk/Rock (Goshen, Vt.)
Things took off so fast for the band Chamberlin, they had yet to play more than a few local shows in Vermont when they signed a record deal eight months in with Roll Call/EMI. The band recorded Bitter Blood (released earlier this year) with Scott Tournet, producer and guitarist with Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Vermont’s current big thing. Chamberlin also received a lot of attention as the opening act for Potter and Co.’s late 2010/early 2011 tour.
You’ll Dig It If You Dig: The Band, a Roots Rock INXS, Cold War Kids. (Mike Breen, CityBeat)
~ "Bitter Blood is a curious hybrid of indie rock — both the reverb-washed and jangly varieties — and hard-charging, Southern-fried rock. Think Band of Horses meets ... well, maybe Blues and Lasers. The album reveals a band whose maturity far outstrips its age. It is loaded with ambitious ideas, executed to near perfection. When a band comes out of nowhere and finds immediate success, it’s natural to be suspicious; it’s hard to believe in rock-and-roll fairy tales these days. But, based on the strength of Bitter Blood, Chamberlin may have a little Cinderella in them." (Seven Days)
