Gun Outfit’s new album, Dream All Over, is now available to stream in full via The FADER ahead of its October 16th release. The songs on Dream All Over invoke imagistic memories and unfold like dreams unremembered upon waking. The incantatory dialogues of singers Carrie Keith (guitar, vocals, slide) and Dylan Sharp (guitar, vocals, banjo, balalaika) throw off a muted, wary carnal heat, the lingering afterimage of spent desire. The unmistakable rhythm section of Daniel Swire (drums, percussion) and Adam Payne (bass, also of Residual Echoes) fuel Dylan and Carrie’s spacious, enmeshed guitar work with a corporeal throb. On their most refined and ruefully elegant album, Gun Outfit has perfected their incandescent sonic signature: a dusky, canyon-cult blues. It’s the nocturnal sound of desert-damaged L.A. burnout, a soured American surrealism in rock and roll creole: white line fever, paint fume flashbacks, a stranger wading out alone into the black surf.

“It’s easy to get psychically lost in these songs: some are jaunty, some are more menacing, but they’re all perfectly designed for some long, Vanishing Point-esque car ride to nowhere along a clay-colored, distinctly American stretch of highway.”

“this band has a punk aesthetic deep at the center and, especially now, slow and drifting, double-guitar desert-rock psychedelia at the surface. ‘Dream All Over’ is the latest installment in the output of a band that’s remained open-ended, slow and steady.”

The New York Times

“Supported by two tessellating guitars and a rhythm section that seems stuck in an infinite, italicized shuffle, [‘Gotta Wanna’ is] a classic get-free anthem, sourced from the great, open American tradition that birthed the Grateful Dead and, more recently, Brightblack Morning Light or even Kurt Vile.”


“Dream All Over is a dusty piece of good time rock ‘n’ roll”

NPR Music

“Gun Outfit songs tend to conjure up daydreams of a weirder, stonier, long-gone version of southern California. ‘Gotta Wanna,’ our first taste of the L.A.-via-Olympia outfit’s gorgeous new full-length, is a good example of that.”


“The latest outing from Gun Outfit crystallizes from nothingness like a Yo La Tengo song slowly surfacing out of primordial ooze. This is music of becoming, an indie rock cut that sounds more like the process of making a pop song than a pop song itself.”


“Gun Outfit’s music has always been so necessary. It exists freely, even if we can’t.”


“The band has always taken a wide-angled approach to music, gaining notice for their country-inflected last record Hard Coming Down. But Dream All Over is more focused on feeling cinematic. This expansive collection of tunes plays like a post-party, pre-hangover wander under a freeway.”
