“I’m gonna hold my bullets, cuz’ a better shot is coming up. I got the secret at the bottom of my pocket.”
The introduction to “Shooter” by Not Blood, Paint entices the listener from the first strums until the 2:48 mark where the drum pattern is enhanced. Not Blood, Paint is George Frye, Mark Jaynes, Seth Miller, and Joe Stratton based in Brooklyn. Go to a show and you’ll notice that you will never see the same costumes worn more than once. Background voices, noises, and distractions add to the cornucopia of musical goodness.
The band confirms that they “manage to share the dynamic time-changes and dueling harmonies of the Dirty Projectors, the spastic inventiveness of neo-prog acts Yeasayer and Of Montreal, and the bombastic histrionics of MUSE or Queen.”
Do you believe? Do your ears a favor and listen.
