The Arts Desk (UK) Gives "The Gus" 4 stars

Delicate dynamics are shored up by the undulating power and to and fro time signature of “Taking Baby Steps”, while the weighty “What If I Go off with Bob?”, featuring the muscular chops of Dinsaur Jr's J Mascis, posesses a simple sense of purpose, both musically and lyrically, that is reminiscent of prime Velvet Underground.

The vinyl single will be out on April 12 in Japan and the rest of the world. Baby Steps in a syncopated slice of confusion and power chords. The video has Mulcahy handcuffed in a cornfield to his interstellar boyfriend while they try to find a happy place on earth. The b-side is ‘Put Me Out of Your Mind,” featuring a grumbling Mulcahy and the great J Mascis on lead guitar, and tells the story of one man’s misguided view of his love life.
