Recorded with some wine and a cat.
In this plugged-in age of infoxication, the unknown has become a strangely seductive force. With his new album Eyes on the Lines – a reference to following the lines in the road, the horizon, landscapes while travelling – Steve Gunn writes an ode to the uncertainty of adventure, in a world where our days are meticulously organised by ‘signing in’.
Recorded “from a room with some wine and a cat”, his Outsider Folk vinyl mix extends this idea of letting yourself get lost. The sublime hour-long selection, which starts with Pharoah Sanders and ends with The Fureys, connects wandering, stray spirits on the road to nowhere.
