Kurt Vile and Steve Gunn, originally connected by mutual friends and geographic proximity, have long pushed one another's continued artistic development. Despite sharing many live stages over the years, this collaborative album represents the first time that the two have worked together in the studio. Vile's side sees him recast tracks by John Prine ('Way Back When') and Randy Newman ('Pretty Boys', featuring some truly *electric* guitar flourishes from Gunn) as if they were KV originals. The bulk of Gunn's contribution is the epically winding 'Spring Garden', a track in the vein of some of his other longform guitar excursions.
