InfoCD & LP10th November 2017

Their fifth LP ranks as their most brutally beautiful statement yet. Drawing from mythologies both classical and postmodern, Out of Range builds a world in which Brueghel the Elder, St. Augustine, and the ancient goddess Cybele ride with John Ford, Samuel Beckett, and Wallace Stevens on a Orphic-Gnostic suicide drive towards the hallucinatory vanishing points of the Southwestern desert, debating the denouement of the decaying American dream. It’s a lesser known beheading-ending of the Orpheus story that L.A. band Gun Outfit recount in Ontological Intercourse, the opening track of their fifth full-length record Out of Range, their most brutally beautiful statement yet. Next time the chorus comes round, singer and guitarist Dylan Sharp - who shares twin vocal and guitar duties with the incomparable Carrie Keith - sings a mutant doo-wop bass line. Ballads for the dead, indeed. Meanwhile, other songs inhabit concerns more terrestrial and immediate, though no less profound: the open road (The 101); human love (Three Words,); death and the failures of faith (Primacy of Love); and the damages, deceits, and delights of drugs (Strange Insistence.)
