Sunburned Hand Of The Man - Pick A Day To Die LP

This music does not come out of nowhere. It comes from a guitar amplifier and a drum kit, and you are standing directly in front of them. And it’s beautiful, all dozen tracks of the Gunn-Truscinski Duo’s Soundkeeper: beautiful loud exchanges between Steve Gunn’s shimmer-blast guitar and John Truscinski’s outside-in drums, beautiful quiet exchanges that hum, beautiful melodies that evoke long-lost screen worlds and old filmstock, beautiful phrases that telescope into saturating pinwheels.
With a decade-long partnership that’s far more like a real band than their discography might imply, Soundkeeper is the duo’s fourth proper album. No one-off blowing session carved into tracks, Soundkeeper is a focused realization of the pair’s full dynamic sweep. It’s music that goes straight for it, ecstasy and flotation and otherness, neither songs nor jams. Perhaps more like windows. Or events. It’s music that immediately goes out, gets out, stays out, has always been out, a glowing radius around the amp and drum kit, intimate even at volume.
