Hailing from Portland, Maine, Gunther Brown are a four piece rock-based Americana band. Their debut album presents a pleasingly lo-fi rough and ready approach to their music that sounds refreshingly honest and straightforward. Songwriter and lead vocalist Pete Dubuc has a voice with built in rasp that speaks of a life full of hardworn experience - and probably a fair deal of whiskey. A kind of life-soured sadness pervades the album; love is something that doesn’t work out or, if it does, it won’t last long (check out the ironically titled Forever). The mood is epitomized by a line in Headlights and Highways: “your fondest memories only make you sad, you can’t go back”.
Well, we frequently enjoy music that enables us to have company in our misery and focusing on the dark side of life tends to make for more interesting writing. Pete Dubuc really goes for it as a writer, laying his deepest feelings on the line and coming up with some great phrases in the process: “lay your head on the table and cry, ‘cause this is goodbye” comes from the minimalist, deeply blue gem, Time and Again. The band play it slow and soulful and they sound as if they’re playing in your living room, such is the complete lack of production trickery. Some songs come fast and upbeat, a hint of rockabilly about the sound they make, but the musical jollity is generally in counterpoint to the world-weary lyrics. The man on electric guitar, Chris Plumstead, gets to pull some blues rock-style solos and their collective ambition is demonstrated on album closer, Up To Me. That electric guitar is slow, blue and soulful and the band lets the song build slowly and gracefully. It’s another end-of-love song, one where it’s clearly over for her, if not for him – a song to help you through those late night drinks as you drown your sorrows.
All in all, Good Nights For Daydreams is a satisfyingly honest, down-to-earth record, setting down a promising maker for Gunther Brown.
