Multi-instrumentalist Steve Marion makes ebullient, worldly music that’s propelled not by vocals (which are typically abstracted and peripheral, if present at all), but rather gliding lead-guitar work, phrased and delivered with a lyrical, often ecstatic clarity. It’s a polyglot aesthetic that’s lured David Byrne’s Luaka Bop label, and one that’s packaged beautifully in “Redeemer,” the song for which Marion self-directed a video full of footage from a trip to India earlier this year.
