"Gun Has No Trigger"

The intensely unclassifiable Dirty Projectors are gearing up for their new album Swing Lo Magellan, which drops July 10 in the U.S. The album is the follow-up to 2009's genre-defying Bitte Orca and the recently released "Gun Has No Trigger" is our first taste of what Dave Longstreth and company are cooking up. The track is buoyed by a lock-step drumbeat and cooing that has come to identify the Dirty Projectors. Longstreth as gets all accusatory, with a hint of weakness in his voice. He levitates between these two poles by stretching his voice like putty, going from somber singing to snarl at a moment's notice. The tracks smacks of simplicity, but in the Dirty Projectors' dictionary that page has been yanked out.
