Mike Gordon, best-known as the bassist of Phish, has struck out on his own as a singer/songwriter in recent years, releasing several collections of songs, including 2014’s curious and enjoyable Overstep. Gordon hardly oversteps at all on this disc. While entirely Phishy in its combination of prog, roots and jam, and in the mental effluvia for lyrics, Overstep is modest, casual and playful in a way that Phish’s largely fruitless angling for radio hits stopped being long ago.
