Another subtle crusher lands from the upcoming Gunn-Truscinski Duo’s Soundkeeper and the album closer does its best to sum up what GTD is all about. An ode to the legendary P-Funk guitarist, this one dives deep into the Maggot Brain afterburn that bounces around the cavern that the duo often find themselves exploring. The song’s doused in a dry ice dose that’s billowing in every direction with Gunn working the cave sonics in tandem with a bit of low-end growl. Both players constantly push each other to the edges of their experimentation, but this is a nice focus in on a sound that gave the Duo life in the first place. Many have tried to emulate Hazel, and many have failed, but Gunn and Truscinski are more than up to the challenge. This LP kicks off the Three Lobed 20th Anniversary bundle that will include Daniel Bachman, Sunburned Hand of the Man, Six Organs of Admittance, Body/Head and Sonic Youth and an as yet to be announced LP. The Lobed knows, so I’d jump on that bundle while it sticks around.
