Seasonal Hire is an all-too brief look into four musicians' quest to push their music further.

PopMatters
It is a beautiful collaboration, a wonderful platform for both the Pickers and Gunn to flex their muscles.

Pitchfork
These songs borrow from their respective catalogs to create something new altogether: a kind of drone folk that’s heavy on high-lonesome ambience yet deeply rooted in the clay of regional tradition.

The 405
If you became interested in Steve Gunn's work because of his recent solo records, then this is definitely worth investigating as well.

The Line of Best Fit
If nothing else, Gunn knows when he’s found a good thing in Virginia’s pickers.

An Appalachian celebration, rough but thrilling and totally human.
