Calla Mapel and Jesse Waldman arrived in Portland in 2009 and put together Gallop around Mapel's forlorn, sea-swept folksongs. Increasing their ranks to six with banjo player Kyle Bruser, backup singer Haley Keegan, violinist Angie Kuzma, and cellist Lauren Vidal, Gallop now has a self-titled debut album—being released tonight—and an appealing catalog of warmly dramatic music, which can be differentiated from the current crop of local folksters by Gallop's brittle classical flourishes and the striking resemblance of Mapel's voice to Linda Thompson's. You can pick up Gallop tonight, and they've got an upcoming three-song video with the Portland Sessions that will be premiering online in the coming days. NED LANNAMANN
