Gunn - Truscinski Duo
Despite the loss of the great Jack Rose, the raga movement remains alive and well and this new record from veteran string slinger Steve Gunn and percussionist John Truscinski is ample proof. Gunn's been a fixture in solo guitar for a while now, crafting releases for Digitalis, Three Lobed and Abandon Ship, while Truscinski has served as a member of GHQ and x.o.4. Sand City works out the duo's mixture of heavy, eastern inflected raga that brings to mind both Sun City Girls' full works and that of Sir Richard Bishop in his own solo style. Cyclic and expansive, the album powers through three longform raga workouts and a closes with the dulcet tones of "Outro", melting the album's intensity an inherit beauty into a graceful close. Both players have long established themselves as part of the ever-growing psych-folk underground but this release solidifies them as some of the most accomplished players in the field alongside James Blackshaw, Ben Chasney and Stephen Basho-Junghans.
