Greg Laswell is readying himself for the release of his highly anticipated record Everyone Thinks I Dodged A Bullet. His first release since 2014’s I Was Going To Be An Astronaut, the forthcoming album is a haunting, euphoric folk-rock release written, performed, produced, and mixed by Laswell. Fully committed to an artful style on Everyone Thinks I Dodged A Bullet, the ten-track journey basks in soaring melodies and timeless vocals from the New York-based artist. When asked about the record, Laswell shared with AMBY;
“I wanted to keep this one very simple. There are no odd time signatures or complex chord progressions. I also flipped my production style a bit; rather than sampling strings and orchestras alongside real live drums, I switched it. Real strings are on nearly every track (with the aid of cellist Colette Alexander), and the drums are straight ahead electronic construction kits. It’s another sad one, which always makes ME happy; I find writing a selfish enterprise, up until it’s released. I hope my listeners can make it their own.”
