The New England trio Dispatch are Dispatch - Bang Bang with their second full-length album, Bang Banga sharp collection of ten songs that is pleasing on all ends of the musical spectrum, from instruments to vocals to songwriting.
Rarely does the record fall into a pattern, and instead Dispatch rotate their sound, from Guster-esque mellowness to the quick style of Sublime. And sometimes they make the transition within the same song. Conversely, the album's next track, "The General," performs the opposite by reserving the mellowness for the chorus and hitting the fast tempo right from the song's onset.
The standout song on the album is, in fact, one of the simpler tracks. It's absent the percussion and other ska-influenced sounds that are abundant on the rest of the album. This by no means implies that these sounds don't work perfectly on the record, because they do, but "Two Coins" is special because it's just an acoustic guitar and vocals, in addition to pretty powerful lyrics.
The original and ear-pleasing "Two Coins" marks a transition of sorts for the album, as the final three tracks are closer to rock and pop songs than ska songs. The album then concludes on a strong note Diggz Da Prophecy - This Is Bullshit (File) "Out Loud," which returns to the acoustic guitar in the lead and relies on Corrigan 's wonderful voice, creating a song that certainly will be heard by the audience at any of Dispatch 's live shows.
