Love Thy Neighbour Presents:
+ T HOUSE
“Gun Outfit” means music by Dylan Sharp (guitar, vocals, banjo, bass, balalaika), Carrie Keith (guitar, vocals, slide, violin), Daniel Swire (drums, percussion), Adam Payne (bass), and Henry Barnes (various stringed instruments, homemade and otherwise), human beings who live and work in Los Angeles, California. Their fifth album, and their second on Paradise of Bachelors, is called Out of Range.
Sonically, Gun Outfit has never sounded more confidently awash in its collective strengths and nuances, its players never more sensually attuned to each other’s playing. Like a stone eroded by years in the arroyo, the band’s enveloping aesthetic of guitar levitations and honky-tonk hexes has become gradually smoother over time. Formerly a four piece, the band have expanded to include Henry Barnes, the legendary mastermind of Man Is the Bastard and Amps for Christ, who has gone from mentoring multi-instrumentalist accomplice to official band member, scarifying these songs with his singular guitar, dulcimer, bouzouki, and fiddle parts as well as his own homemade hybrid instruments like the “sibanjar” and “springocaster lap-slide.”
