Happy Release Day to Gun Outfit.

Happy Release Day to Gun Outfit.

The acclaimed new album by Gun Outfit, their most brutally beautiful statement yet, is now available where’er you may range, above or below the earth. Out of Range contains the band’s most conceptually sophisticated and lyrically ambitious material, while remaining their most musically subtle, understated, and accessible album to date, completing their gradual metamorphosis from punk aesthetics to a truly cosmic country—wherein “country” is a geography, a structure of feeling, not a genre. What other record begins with Orpheus and ends with Samuel Beckett?

Gun Outfit Shares Their “Landscape Painter” Video via The FADER.

In keeping with the “Western expanse” themes evident on Out of Range—warped tales of Western civ melting into those of the American West—and the “intoxicating” song’s title and lyrics (which name check Dutch Renaissance artist Brueghel the Elder), the video was shot on Super 8 film during the band’s EU tour last year in various locations, including the Bronze Age stone circle known as Long Meg and Her Daughters.

Gun Outfit Goes Out of Range.

Gun Outfit Goes Out of Range.

Like a stone eroded by years in the arroyo, Gun Outfit’s enveloping “Western expanse” aesthetic of guitar levitations and honky-tonk hexes has become gradually smoother over time. Their fifth LP ranks as their most brutally beautiful statement yet. Preorder Out of Range, and hear “Strange Insistence” via NPR Music, who call it “a song about giving into pleasure, and discovering the joys and pains of consequence, centered around an irregular groove that squiggles like heat waves off baked asphalt.” Pitchfork compared it to Merle Haggard and Terry Allen! Also: in memoriam John Ashbery and Orpheus.

Gun Outfit:  Out of Range  (PoB-036)

Gun Outfit: Out of Range (PoB-036)

Like a stone eroded by years in the arroyo, Gun Outfit’s “Western expanse” aesthetic of guitar levitations and honky-tonk hexes has become gradually smoother. Their fifth LP ranks as their most brutally beautiful statement yet. Drawing from mythologies both classical and postmodern, Out of Range builds a world in which Brueghel, St. Augustine, and the goddess Cybele ride with John Ford, Samuel Beckett, and Wallace Stevens on a Orphic-Gnostic suicide drive towards the hallucinatory vanishing points of the Southwestern desert, debating the denouement of the decaying American dream.
