A whole lotta great news packed into one post here. First and foremost, Gunn-Truscinski Duo return and the first track off of their upcoming Soundkeeper is as slinking and satisfying as they’ve ever been. Steve Gunn’s been plenty busy holding it down solo over the past few years, but he and John Truscinski have kept up a partnership that pays out in knotted riffs and loose-limbed brilliance over the past few years. The bonus to this beast of at 2xLP release is that it marks the first of a new 20th Anniversary series by Three Lobed Records that’s both bound up as a limited bundle and available a la carte for those that don’t choose to enter into a year-long anticipation endeavor. But how ya gonna pass up that full package with names like Daniel Bachman, Sunburned Hand of the Man, Six Organs of Admittance, Body/Head and Sonic Youth on the ticket. That’s not to mention a bonus LP with secret performers, and if these are all the announced bands, what treasures could lie in that seventh entry? My love affair with Three Lobed has spanned the entirety of the site and their subscription series always prove essential. 20 years is an admirable milestone and from the sounds of it, this is off to a great start.
