sonically & lyrically ‘way out weather’ demonstrates a radical evolution, with the guitarist & songwriter lighting out for lusher, more expansive, & impressionistic territories.

the cascading runs of ‘milly’s garden’, the menacing urgency of ‘drifter,’ & the alien, galvanic syncopation of album closer ‘tommy’s congo’ (the latter unlike anything gunn has heretofore recorded) display a thrilling mastery of heavier, increasingly kinetic full-band arrangements. his vocals throughout are more present, commanding, & refined, revealing a restrained but highly nuanced baritone capable of remarkable grace, while his discursive, mantric guitar style - as influenced by western guitarists such as michael chapman & sonny sharrock as by ghanaian highlife, gnawa, & carnatic forms -maintains its signature helical intricacy & mesmeric propulsion. “former kurt vile compadre completes full transformation into majestic american singer-songwriter” 5/5 – mojo.
