American guitar player Steve Gunn sweetened my last year with his music. First his collaboration with the folkies from Hiss Golden Messenger as Golden Gunn, then his latest solo record Time Off, which appeared on my Best-Of-List and of course Desert Heat, another collaboration, this time with Cian Nugent and John Truscinski. And now, early 2014 he is already back. Steve Gunn & Mike Gangloff (of Pelt fame) combine six-and 12-string guitars with gongs, tanpura, singing bowls, shruti box, and banjo for a gorgeous collection of improvised compositions. Can’t believe how good these guys are with their mixture of American Primitive, Indian classical, and contemporary drone / minimalist traditions. Get in the mood and listen to Topeka AM below taken from Melodies For A Savage Fix. It’s just fantastic.
