Brian Douglas Phillips' second full-length release is an exploration of the American West -- ferocious, spectral and sweet. His colloquial ballads and soul-tinged voice find a thrilling new backdrop on the frontier. Phillips approaches GUNNISON with a fresh grit and charisma; his vocals are bolder, angrier and more desperate. GUNNISON pushes the boundaries of typical singer-songwriter fare, probing modern rock, indie and soul, and diving headfirst into classic country.
