Dirty Projectors – The Gun Has No Trigger

Dirty Projectors

First of all, that title are catchy. Yes I did clicking the play button on their track from my Soundloud stream just because the title are catchy. I was wondering about the lyrics, I thought it would be very depressing, something about a guy who have problem telling something to someone. Another romance cliche, with emo style. But then, I was wrong. The Gun Has No Trigger might be part of the upcoming album, Swing Lo Magellan.

Dave Longstreth, the singer, gifted with this remarkable voice and he is singing the whole song nicely. My thought about the guy with a romantical problem was right actually, yet how they are represent the story are beyond my expectation. The Gun Has No Trigger is an amazing track, the band doing great job writing this song. It was written in a Dylan style, and we all know that Dylan never fails anyone. I find myself overwhelmed, caught by classic romance through a band like Fastball. A looping beat with some beautiful harmonies in the backgroud and a soul vibe from Dave’s vocal. Dave singing reminds me of Tony Scalzo, that’s why I mentioning Fastball at the first place.

Dirty Projectors wil reaching their first decade in music next year, they already giving us awesome musics since released their first vinyl in 2003. For those didn’t know about Dirty Projectors before, you should start looking for their musics from now on. Their 2010 project with Bjork would be a good start, Mount Wittenberg Orca, it was released in a digital copy only and I’m sure you will easily find it on the net. Dave is a hars guy sometimes, if you remember his words on Zappa and Classic Rock, but then it’s all true that he is a great songwriter. Well, people has their own way on expressing their thoughts. Enjoy!
