Steve Gunn’s “Ancient Jules”


Steve Gunn is coming out with an album June 3 on Matador Records, and has shared a new single at NPR in anticipation of the upcoming release. “Ancient Jules” sees Gunn’s voice and guitar work once again backed by a full band, which fills out his sound without fundamentally altering it. As NPR’s premier says, “here he is guided, as ever, by a riff that plays with time—a wormhole of a hook that’s whipped up in a hurry and brought back to a long sip.”
