David Grubbs. The grubby handed finger plucker has a new album on Drag City on the multi formatting heaven that is CD and LP. 'An Optimist Deflects The Dust' is its name and it's a complex beast. Much too complex for me to explain in the paltry amount of time I have to do this so I'll be brief. Immediately it sounds like Gastr Del Sol but then seeing as though he was in 'em then that probably explains that one. The songs on here are long and they amble along seemingly going nowhere. Where can songs go?? Up? Down?? To the shops? On the album we have some minimal percussion, some meandering guitar playing and his vocals which dip in and out like a kingfisher grabbing at fish. I can be poetic too. It may go on a little at times but it certainly has its moments. Not bad like.
