After nearly a decade and a steady flow of full lengths, EPs, and tapes, Gun Outfit can be safely identified as underground stalwarts and an institution of sorts, embodying the promise of lives lived for art. Outlasting simplistic “sounds like” comparisons, Gun Outfit have arrived at a sound that is awash in western light and as deep and expansive as their beloved Pacific Ocean.
On the heels of their justly lauded LP Dream All Over (out now via Paradise of Bachelors) Gun Outfit deliver Two Way Player, an EP of enigmatic and spacious guitar music that stands alongside the bandʼs boldest and strongest work thus far. Abstracted legends of the American West, fortunes gained and lost, tragic songs of life rendered in deep focus – all portrayed through mysterious and dense compositions that recall the lonely expanses and warm intimacies of the films of Bruce Baillie and Gunvor Nelson. Compulsory listening for any fan of American Music, Two Way Player is a brief, beautiful dispatch from the countryʼs most consistent band, a record equally suited for stoned sunny mornings and lonely full moon nights. Two Way Player was recorded in New York in June 2015 and features an alternate lineup including David Harris (Milk Music) on bass, Joe Denardo (Growing/Ornament) on guitar and Will Lawrence on electric piano in addition to the core group of Daniel Swire, Carrie Keith and Dylan Sharp. Recorded at Kutch 1 Studios, Brooklyn. Edition of 500 records.
