Hiss Golden Messenger + Steve Gunn = Golden Gunn

This one deserves a special mention for JJ Cale fans. It's 43 minutes of pure fun, but feels like only 30, which usually means a repeat play if nowhere more important to be. Steve Gunn really adds a nice dimension to the music with his guitar playing, and they often let it wander off to where it feels best. Just sounds better and better with each new spin. Time capsule stuff, really no way one could tell when this was recorded, these guys are all at the top of their game here. Brilliant guitar work, very nicely recorded and transferred too, DR11 on the flac download from bandcamp, and the 2013 RSD vinyl was reissued a couple years ago. Not many vocals, but very fine record, highly recommended, and you can tell by the cover from where the inspiration comes ...

...honed into an altogether stranger collaborative session vibe, copping feels from Silk favorites like J.J. Cale, Waylon Jennings, Boz Scaggs, and the Average White Band. Featuring additional contributions from HGM tillerman Terry Lonergan on drums, Abigail Martin on flute, and Nora Rogers on mountain dulcimer, the resulting rig maps the scary wrong side of the country-funk tracks, exploring the odd, compass-busting entanglement of plodding old drum machines and sinuous, simmering guitars and synths.
