Album artwork for Out of Range by Gun Outfit

Their fifth LP ranks as their most brutally beautiful statement yet. Drawing from mythologies both classical and postmodern, Out of Range builds a world in which Brueghel the Elder, St. Augustine, and the ancient goddess Cybele ride with John Ford, Samuel Beckett, and Wallace Stevens on a Orphic-Gnostic suicide drive towards the hallucinatory vanishing points of the Southwestern desert, debating the denouement of the decaying American dream. It’s a lesser known beheading-ending of the Orpheus story that L.A. band Gun Outfit recount in Ontological Intercourse, the opening track of their fifth full-length record Out of Range, their most brutally beautiful statement yet. Next time the chorus comes round, singer and guitarist Dylan Sharp - who shares twin vocal and guitar duties with the incomparable Carrie Keith - sings a mutant doo-wop bass line. Ballads for the dead, indeed. Meanwhile, other songs inhabit concerns more terrestrial and immediate, though no less profound: the open road (The 101); human love (Three Words,); death and the failures of faith (Primacy of Love); and the damages, deceits, and delights of drugs (Strange Insistence.)
