The Quietus has premiered the video for Gun Outfit’s “In Orbit,” from Dream All Over. Vocalist/guitarist Dylan Sharp, who directed the video, describes it thusly:
“An experimental video that depicts alien lifeforms disintegrating into washes of colors. An exploration of the glimmering surface of the veil that separates us from the emptiness of sea and space. We made an agreement not to penetrate too deeply. Shot on Hi 8 and Super 8. With Lilah Slager Rose.”
The band is about to embark on East Coast U.S. and EU tours; see below for details and posters.
This release is a whole barrel of lovely. If you consider the Jim O’Rourke years to be Wilco’s greatest era, then a) you’d be right, and b) Dream All Over could be right up your dusty street. Sharing vocals with Carrie Keith, Dylan Sharp has a drawl to die for, especially when he’s burring out lines about “trying to buy some time to fuck around”. Most of Dream All Over’s cuts are under four minutes long but they feel lengthier, in a good way, twisting and writhing around, with the guitars, sitars and other bits and pieces of stringed wooden apparatus weaving in and out of one another like a rustic Sonic Youth with one ear to India, as East meets Wild West.
