The mostly instrumental musings of Delicate Steve—the quixotic concern of guitar ripper Steve Marion—have forever been united by extreme senses of curiosity and possibility. Where most people might hear a simple slide guitar line, Marion might hear the basis for lithe, light funk squiggle. Where any guitarist less wide-eyed might hear an unresolved neon guitar fragment, Marion might hear the anchor of strangely cuddly noise, with piano chords and wordless vocals shaping a mattress for his thin electric leads.

So when a weekend of New Jersey floods separated Marion and Delicate Steve's other guitarist, Christian Peslak, from the rest of the band for what was meant to be a long rehearsal, they used it as an excuse to start a new band rather than a reason to waste away on the couch. Beyond the Drone, which finds Marion mostly on drums and Peslak taking the lead, is a compulsively eclectic pop-country-rock record, where bracing jangles such as "Crying From the Road" sidle up to Sloan-like power-pop bursts like "Young Vultures." There's wistful drift and serrated stomp, collage-like curios and heel-kicking country. Most of all, there's the wondrous sense that, so long as these two are making music, anything could happen in the service of sound. —Grayson Currin
