Audio Mixer: Nicolas Vernhes. Recording information: Black Dirt Studio, Westtown, NY (04/2015/09/2015); Uniform Recording, Philadelphia, PA (04/2015/09/2015). Brooklyn singer, songwriter, and guitar slinger Steve Gunn makes his Matador debut with Eyes on the Lines, a windblown set of road explorations that, despite its meandering nature, is one of his most accessible records yet. The Pennsylvania native has maintained a prolific output over the previous decade, much of it in the form of one-off projects and collaborations, but his solo releases all seem to spring from the same well of wanderlust. Expanding on the spacious sound of his excellent 2014 LP, Way Out Weather, Eyes on the Lines is more of a free-flowing rock affair, finding Gunn and his band locking into bucolic grooves that take their time to unfurl. Both lyrically and musically, Gunn’s themes seem geared toward observation and the natural relationship with one’s surroundings, urging listeners to take your time, ease up, look around, and waste the day on opener Ancient Jules. It introduces the album’s casual tone and sets up subsequent highlights like the breezy Nature Driver and Night Wander, an affable moonlit ramble whose nimble riffs are punctuated by some clever work from drummer John Truscinski. As with Gunn’s more recent albums, echoes of cerebral jammers like the Grateful Dead and the Velvet Underground can be heard in his work, though his style ultimately comes across as more impressionistic than either of those two sources. But as blissed-out a road record as it is, Eyes on the Lines contains some very tho

Brooklyn-based improvisational psych-rock trio Rhyton have gradually expanded their sound since their self-titled 2011 debut, incorporating exotic instrumentation and sharpening the focus of their work. Redshift, their third release for Thrill Jockey, is simultaneously their most down-to-earth recording as well as their most ambitious and wide-ranging. In the five years since its debut, the group has advanced significantly, moving beyond sounding like a jammy side project into something more concrete. The arrangements on this album are more complex, with tricky, non-repetitive rhythms and inventive tunings. Guitarist Dave Shuford (of No-Neck Blues Band) often twists his strings or utilizes unique combinations of speakers and pedals in order to produce unconventional sounds. His melodies are inspired by Middle Eastern and Greek folk music, and there are some hypnotic, raga-like moments as well (particularly the drumless Concentric Village). At the same time, the album also explores the group’s laid-back country-rock side, particularly on the Grateful Dead-esque title track. The album’s penultimate track is a cover of Joe Walsh’s Turn to Stone, with vocals fed through a Leslie speaker in order to produce a tremolo effect (think Black Sabbath’s Planet Caravan). From the song’s lyrical beginnings, they branch off into a swirling group improvisation, ending up at a more bracing finale. Rhyton sound like they could easily play for hours on end and not get tired, and possibly not even come close to reaching their peak, but they rein in their impulses in order to keep things focused and explore more ideas in the album format, and it works pretty well. ~ Paul Simpson
