Boerum Palace by Steve Gunn

8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 18 December 2009
Steve Gunn steps out on his own for a second full length entitled 'Boerum Palace'. Best known for his work with GHQ as well as his affiliations with Sunburned Hand of the Man and Magik Markers. Here we see him exploring psyche infused americana and folk, performed primarily on acoustic guitar and accompanied by Marc Orleans on Pedal Steel. Opener 'Mr Franklin' is a sprawling epic showcasing some super fluid skill on both Gunn and Orlean's part, the pedal steel playing is particularly aggressive giving a sense of heightened drama. The crazed fuzzy solo in 'House of Knowledge' is also notable for introducing a little psychedielia to the mix. Other highlights here include a sparse James Blackshaw-esque instrumental entitled 'Variatim II' and a cheeky reworking of J.J. Cale's “crying eyes” dubbed “cryin' eyes”. Some moments here remind me of Alexander Tucker or possibly Dave Pajo (toward the end of the Aerial M period and into the Papa M stuff) yet mainly this has an authentic Americana sound albeit, via the farthest recesses of the american underground rock scene.
