If the year was 1991 instead of 2011 Gypsybood would be on Matador Records. Spin magazine would be creaming their pants extolling the band's praises. Stephen Malkmus and Bob Pollard would be at their shows bobbing their heads in the back of the room. Their debut, Cold In The Guestway, is immediately familiar but never tiring. The Chicago duo of Adam James and Kyle Victor are creating music from a different age that sounds better than ever today. Download the tracks below and then catch them at their album release show at Liar's Club tonight.

MP3: Gypsyblood "Take Your Picture"
MP3: Gypsyblood "My R.K.O. Is M.I.A."

Gypsyblood plays tonight, April 29, at Liar's Club, 1665 W Fullerton, 8 p.m., FREE, 21+
