VIDEO : Steve Gunn – “Ancient Jules”

By Gerard on Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

“Ancient Jules” (directed by Claes Nordwall)

“Initially an instrumental guitarist, Gunn has really come into his own as a full-band-backed singer, more assured in his soft and leathery tenor. . . Gunn’s found a kindred guitarist in James Elkington; the two toss off a thicket of Richard Lloyd/Tom Verlaine-style interplay that turns into a rigorous workout as ‘Ancient Jules’ folds in feedback, countermelodies and a solo that burns like a cigarette hanging just off the lip.” – Lars Gotrich, NPR Music


“Steve Gunn is one of the best guitarists of his generation. Period.” – Richard Metzger, Dangerous MInds

The second video from Steve Gunn’s first album for Matador, ‘Eyes On The Lines’ (June 3) premiered earlier today at Dangerous Minds in the form of the Claes Nordwall-directed “Ancient Jules”. When a motorcycle excursion on the English countryside goes awry, Steve is rescued by another certifiable non-slouch in guitar history, the one and only Michael Chapman. Nordwall’s cameras are welcomed into Chapman’s home and aside from the obvious (ie. you don’t get this kind of service from AAA), it’s pretty awesome to watch these two fantastic players/songwriters in a casual (ALBEIT HEAVILY STAGED) setting. The ‘Ancient Jules’ digital EP is also out today and includes two non-album bonus tracks, “The Handshake” and “The Soloist.” Check it out at Spotify or Apple Music.

Steve Gunn & The Outliners – Nathan Bowles (drums), James Elkington (guitar, lap steel), and Jason Meagher (bass) — head to Europe next week to begin a two-month tour in support of Eyes On The Lines. Their debut show in North America is June 9th at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn. All dates are below.

Coming June 3 : Steve Gunn – ‘Eyes On The Lines’, “Conditions Wild” video premiere

By The Management on Wednesday, March 30th, 2016

“Conditions Wild” – directed by Brandon Herman

We’re thrilled to announce the release of a new album from guitarist/songwriter Steve Gunn, ‘Eyes On The Lines’, coming June 3rd, worldwide. . Gunn’s music has always embraced expanse and movement, springing from the simple and profound relationship between humans and their environment. ‘Eyes On The Lines’, the follow-up to Gunn’s pastoral and highly acclaimed ‘Way Out Weather’, is his most explicit ode to the blissful uncertainty of adventure yet.

Accompanied by a full band — Nathan Bowles (drums, banjo, organ), Hans Chew (wurlitzer), James Elkington (guitar, lap steel, dobro), Mary Lattimore (harp), Jason Meagher (bass, guitar, flute), Paul Sukeena, Justin Tripp (bass, keyboards), John Truscinski (drums), and (electric, guitar) –– ‘Eyes On The Lines’ presents Gunn embracing his urban surroundings through a series of songs that showcase his extraordinary ability to match inventive hooks to deftly constructed melodies full of personality.

Throughout ‘Eyes On The Lines’, Gunn is more narrator than diarist as he pours real-life moments and real-life people into vibrant and evocative tales. Take debut single, “Conditions Wild,” for example. Directly inspired by Rebecca Solnit’s A Field Guide to Getting Lost, Gunn rambles through strange clouds of roving — interlocking strings, percussion, and vocals join in an irrepressible rush. It’s accompanying, highly-stylized video, directed by Brandon Herman, phenomenally captures the notion of finding comfort in getting lost and embracing the unknown, an important concept to Gunn in his songwriting and playing, and the creation of ‘Eyes On The Lines’ as a whole.

Steve Gunn will be touring extensively all over Europe and North America this year. All confirmed dates are below.

TRACKLISTING
1. Ancient Jules
2. Full Moon Tide
3. The Drop
4. Conditions Wild
5. Nature Driver
6. Heavy Sails
7. Night Wander
