The release date for Steve Gunn’s latest full-length effort Eyes On the Lines is quickly approaching. He announced the project at the end of this past March in tandem with the lead single “Conditions Wild“, and the latest preview of the album comes in the form of “Ancient Jules” via NPR. It’s layers upon layers of soaring guitars, intricate drums, and just a tinge of wandering shoegaze all wrapped in a rhythmic frenzy as Gunn urges, “Take your time, ease up and waste the day.” This is a song about actually experiencing the things surrounding you, and it parallels the exquisite interlocking guitar lines and competing rhythms enveloping Gunn’s voice. Check it out here.
Eyes On the Lines is out 6/3 on Matador.
