The impeachable Steve Gunn has been involved with Kurt Vile and The Violators in the past, but more recently, he has recently focused on his own material and solo career. A guitarist in the American Primitivist tradition, Gunn pulls from John Fahey's wide scope of influence without ever feeling like he's cribbed anything. In reality, Gunn has five solo albums of eclectic, sparse guitar work and simply sung lyrics, but 2013's Time Off has been one of his most recognized releases so far. Expect wry, dour reflections on life amidst intricate finger-picking and a storm of strumming.
