Artist: GUNN, STEVE
Title: Boerum Palace
Format: LP
Label: 3Lobed
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Purple/ white swirl vinyl. Steve Gunns prodigious talent for fusing traditional American song structures with a raga influence is almost criminally unheralded. Gunns songcraft is so strong and his playing style so effortlessly beautiful that folks should be shouting his name from every tall building and mountaintop. It is with such high esteem for the mans work that Three Lobed Recordings is humbled by the association and thrilled to announce the release of Boerum Palace by Steve Gunn. Without any doubt, Boerum Palace is a staggering accomplishment and is certainly Gunns most assured and confident work to date." -3Lobed.

Title: Sundowner
Format: CD
Label: Digitalis
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Steve Gunn is probably best known as a key component to the mighty GHQ with Marcia Bassett (Double Leopards) and Pete Nolan (Magik Markers), but his solo efforts have been even more impressive. With a couple limited & hard-to-find CD-Rs under his belt and a few offerings under the moniker Moongang, Gunn is ready to step out of the shadows and into the spotlight with his first proper CD. This music is finely-tuned and expertly crafted by Gunns capable hands, showing his skill not only as a guitarist, but as a songwriter as well. Sundowner may be short & sweet, but it has an epic feeling. Gunn reaches deep into the vaults to line the walls with hypnotic acoustic guitar dirges, organic drones, and banjo ditties. And unlike any of his previous work, he also unleashes his voice on three songs, showing that not only can he play with the best of them, he can sing too. When hes not wowing the listener racing around the fretboard, his simple but effective vocal hooks are sinking themselves deep into the confines of your memory." Limited to 500 copies in 2-color black gatefold jackets. - Digitalis

Title: Sundowner
Format: LP
Label: Harvest
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Native Philadelphian and current Brooklynite Steve Gunn has been paving a unique path in his solo career for years now, fusing elements of the American experimental scene (as a member of drone./noise ensemble GHQ) with complex finger-picking and raga-inspired styles to craft a new direction. Almost a full year since the release of the ecstatic Boerum Palace (Three Lobed Recordings), we are pleased to present Sundowner for the first time on vinyl. Sundowner was previously only available in limited CD form on Digitalis. Pressed at RTI for maximum listening pleasure, the album was remastered by Patrick Klehm (Lee Ranaldo, Comets On Fire, Yellow Swans) with an additional five minutes of work. This pressing is limited to 500 copies." -Harvest

Title: Time Off
Format: CD
Label: Paradise Of Bachelors
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"In the city were all angling for quittin time, laboring along and among the hours, searching and scheming for the sweet sound of those two easy words: Time Off. Its something you take -- or sometimes steal, like a thief or a baserunner -- but seems you can never get enough of it. Its regulated, rationed, and billed by volume, like water or electricity or ice cream. Sometimes you have to beg the boss for more, or even for a trifling taste. So lets make time! Lets roll the dice and get these old bones out on the road again. Steve Gunns new album imagines the fugitive moments afforded us during time off, out, and away as occasions for dilatory investigations into our immediate environments and interiors. Time Off showcases the virtuosic guitarist and songwriters oblique character sketches and story-songs, some of which, like Lurker and Street Keeper, portray specific denizens of his Brooklyn neighborhood. Old Strange celebrates Jack Rose, a dear and departed friend and muse. Those contemplative studies frame Gunns most affecting, accessible and articulate work of pure song-craft to date. His definitive statement as a songwriter, Time Offrepresents the culmination of nearly fifteen years of stylistic experimentation as a solo artist, a member of GHQ and the Gunn-Truscinski Duo, and more recently, as a guitarist in fellow Philadelphia-bred troubadour Kurt Viles touring band the Violators. Gunns first eponymous album with a full band, Time Off harnesses a core trio format to launch his compositions into new, luminous strata; the songs have evolved through disciplined trio interplay with longtime collaborator John Truscinski on drums and Justin Tripp (formerly of Aspera and Favourite Sons) on bass and guitar. Helena Espvall (Espers) also guests on cello. Steves keen baritone voice features more prominently than ever before on these tunes, each of which feels both more rigorous and expansive than previous efforts." - Paradise Of Bachelors.
