Greg Laswell – Everyone Thinks I Dodged A Bullet

Tuesday 15th, March 2016 / 16:48
By Aja Cadman

greglaswellVanguard Records

Everyone Thinks I Dodged A Bullet begins with the track “I Dodged A Bullet,” in which he declares, “I’m not going to tell my new friends about you/ No, I’m going to let that slide” is a caustic song that reveals how lovers become strangers. Laswell’s low, rumbling baritone voice (reminiscent of Leonard Cohen) combined with mournful strings and intimate, often gut-wrenching lyrics plays like a lullaby for the broken hearted. Everyone Thinks I Dodged A Bullet is a mix of atmospheric rock, melodic ballads, a dash of electronica and feels intrinsically personal as he takes you through the gamut of emotions that come with love and heartache. The line from “Not The Same Man“ proclaiming, “I’ve got great big plans since you’ve seen me last / I’m not the same man” is enlightened and bold, while the line “You love your husbands too / As long as they don’t belong to you” from the track “Out Of Line” is biting and callous. This is the album you would listen too after a break up, lying in bed, wallowing in your sorrow. And this is not meant in a bad way; Laswell skillfully draws out a visceral response and creates a bond between artist and listener. Misery or not, this album is good company to keep.
