BEST in SHOW

Think of BEST in SHOW as a kibble-sized version of radioUNLEASHED. Each week, we’ll search the kennel high and low and select one sonic purebred to highlight here. It might be a yummy new tune, an under-appreciated old bone or an old dog’s guilty pleasure.

Steve Gunn

Steve Gunn – Vagabond

Our Best In Show this week comes out of New York City. A sort of Americana-style version of something by the Go-Betweens, “Vagabond” is a cut from the prolific Steve Gunn‘s latest album, The Unseen In Between, available now from Matador Records. For more information visit steve-gunn.com.
