Album of the Week – 27/08/21

Are you ready for this? Yes, it’s another Friday and that means another round-up of new sounds!

One of the best live bands you’ll see, The Bronx release their new album imaginatively called The Bronx VI. How do they keep coming up with those names? Yann Tiersen has a new release (Kerber) and Big Red Machine have returned with ‘How Long Do You Think It’s Gonna Last?’ It’s a band that includes Justin Vernon and Aaron Dessner, so worth checking out! It may cross the divide between indie and mainstream thanks to “Renegade” which features Taylor Swift!

So, it’s no real surprise that we went for Steve Gunn, is it? You can read Killian’s glowing review here.

Album of the Week -— Steve Gunn – Other You

“I came up with this title when we were recording vocals and Rob was very into harmonies. There was a third part and I just couldn’t find the note. I couldn’t vocalize it. He went in and took my voice and put it into his computer program, then he could playback and “sing” the note with my voice using the computer. And he said, ‘Sing to the other you.’ So I was singing along to myself singing note I couldn’t sing”–Steve Gunn

Other You is the sixth studio album by American singer Steve Gunn that will be released August 27th on Matador. Recorded during two visits to Los Angeles in late 2020 and early 2021, the album was made with veteran producer Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliott Smith, Cass McCombs, Kurt Vile) at his Mant Studios alongside musician and longtime friend and collaborator Justin Tripp, whose credits include appearances on Gunn’s Time Off and Way Out Weather.
