Gauntlet Hair releases new song, playing CMJ

Lafayette-based duo Gauntlet Hair, who was picked up by Dead Oceans over the summer, is set to release its self debut on the imprint on October 18. Already receiving high praise from a number of music blogs around the country for "Top Bunk," the first single from the album, Gauntlet Hair just released another cut from the disc, "Keep Time," which you can hear after the jump.

The duo kicks off its tour at the Meadowlark on Saturday, September 24 and then hits the CMJ Music Marathon before hooking up with the Unknown Mortal Orchestra for a number of dates, including the Larimer Lounge on Halloween.
