Bryan Dunn :: Vicious Waltz :: Coyote Music Review
www.coyotemusic.com, 6 June 2014 [cached]
by Bryan Dunn
...
The danceable groove of "Television Song" introduces Bryan Dunn's latest release, Vicious Waltz. The 10-song album constitutes Dunn's best recording to date, with regard to his songwriting, production, and musical maturity. While his lyrics have drawn listeners into his songs since the early '90s, fans could previously count on his themes to frequent autobiographical loves and loves lost (more the latter than former). Vicious Waltz does not sidestep the topic entirely but surrounds it impressively with topics ranging from "Ordinary"'s comment on Top 40 artists' egos to "The Ghost of Abe Lincoln"'s anti-war strains.
With Vicious Waltz, Dunn consciously makes an impressive (and successful) effort to include a large cast of performers he's worked with since relocating from Austin, Texas to New York City in 2001.
...
Still, similar to the rest of Bryan Dunn's repertoire, Vicious Waltz's greatest strength lies in his keen ability to write poppy, melodically pleasing narratives that hold listeners' attention throughout an entire album.
Dunn crafts carefully worded, succinct phrases to simultaneously paint visual pictures and convey entire spectra of emotions. "There's a ten dollar ring on your finger / And a five dollar ring in my hand" brings to light two people's romantic incompatibility, their diverged paths in life and differing socioeconomic values. In the same words, we learn about the speaker's disappointment and feelings of material inadequacy. "Ordinary" takes a shot at the egotistical rock star type, "A subtle fraud, a wink and nod, you just want someone to applaud / And when you say 'love' you mean 'penetration.'" In just two lines, Bryan deftly attacks an overblown persona, onstage posing, selfish motivation, and cheap lyrical clichés.
...
Each of Bryan Dunn's recordings, though truly enjoyed in their entirety by listeners, seems to uncannily produce one unofficial yet crystal clear fan favorite song. His contribution of "Sunshine" to 1993's eponymous Echo Juliet album is still requested when he returns to his musical hometown of Austin. More recently, "Audio, Stereo, Radio" from 2005's Static and Scripture has garnered him both critical praise and elicits audience sing-a-longs at his gigs.
Perhaps this collection of songs will provoke more introspection as a whole, and not have that song that begs for happily inebriated hoots at live shows. Or, maybe the fan favorite might grow along with Dunn's work. My personal example being that after numerous listens to multiple mixes of the album over the past year, "Hollow" is still the one song that stands above the rest. Yet given its tempo, mood, and a more intense emotional subject matter, I'd feel a bit odd hollerin' for it in a club (but please, Bryan, consider this an advance request for "Hollow" at the next show I can attend).

Coyote Music Press Release
...
Dunn will release Sweetheart of the Music Hall on April 3rd, a disc that highlights his timeless - at times love-worn and other times exuberant - whiskey-soaked sound.
...
"Strongly influenced by the 60's musical invasion of The Beatles, it's almost impossible not to hear fragments of Lennon and McCartney in some of Dunn's work.
...
The album title serves as both an homage to the Byrds' Sweetheart of the Rodeo (also referenced in the song "Geraldine") and a nod to the musicians with whom Dunn has climbed the ranks at Rockwood Music Hall.
...
"For a long time, it seemed like Austin had a community of musicians but New York had a scene," said Dunn. "But, when Rockwood opened and the late nights started, that changed. Suddenly you were playing for and with people because it was fun, not because you had an agenda. There were nationally known acts mingling with locals, but it didn't matter. People went there to listen, not to be seen."
Sweetheart's pulp style album art - conceived by Dunn after grabbing a Hard Case Crime novel to read during jury duty - features cover model Ann Courtney of Mother Feather and occasional bartender at Rockwood.
