Oddments of the Gamble' is a continuation of the unique, analogue concoctions that formed the first album - very much like a ‘part two’ in many ways. Although it inevitably draws on a similar formula to the previous LP - pensive loops and melodies, sweeping arpeggios, post-rock jams, and rolling jazz breaks - Oddments of the Gamble still stands alone as another statement from the trio despite originating from the same recording session. nonkeen’s history has always been shaped by the mysterious convergence of coincidence with the band’s steady exploration of as yet unheard sounds.
Oddments of the Gamble is the trio’s second album, and while it is ostensibly a collection of tracks that didn’t make the cut for the band’s early 2016 debut The Gamble, it is actually a stronger album, at once more delicate and more whole.

German improvisational group Nonkeen's early-2016 debut, The Gamble, was the product of several years' worth of homegrown experimentation from three childhood friends (namely Nils Frahm, Frederic Gmeiner, and Sebastian Singwald). After accumulating numerous tracks recorded during informal sessions over the course of nearly a decade, the band had several albums' worth of material ready to release. They assembled two albums and flipped a coin to decide which one to put out first. The Gamble just happened to be the one that won the coin toss
Nonkeen's "Oddments of the Gamble" is feautured in this month's Electronic Sound Magazine: "While the trio insist chance and a toss of a coin often play a role in their post-rock, ambient, experimental tape recording, there is real skill at work here. Tracks like the swirling hypnosis of „Diving Platform and the huge ebb and flows of „World Air are a treat.
Nils Frahm's trio, nonkeen, has a second album due on R&S next month. The band's three members-Nils Frahm, Frederic Gmeiner and Sepp Singwald-became friends while at primary school in Hamburg in the late '80s. They recorded two records under the name Übertonmensch in the mid-2000s, a decade before reuniting for their first album as nonkeen. The trio's follow-up, Oddments Of The Gamble, is "very much like a part two," the label says. R&S Records will release Oddments Of The Gamble on July 15th, 2016. Label: R&S Records.
Summary: The second full-length release from the trio that includes Nils Frahm, Frederic Gmeiner and Sebastian Singwald features more tracks made from their early 1990s four-track recordings.
Many attributed the album to Nils Frahm and pals, which in a sense is true; the trio comprises the hypnotic composer and two of his lifelong friends. Though, it’s not like oddments are the ones determined not to be good enough for the first record. If you believe their press release, the band apparently flipped a coin to determine which songs would make it onto the gamble, but were then still so happy with these losers that they decided to release them as a sequel. However, there is a sort of distinction between the two records, even if it’s being placed with hindsight and cognitive bias.
