Lil Daggers’ “Dada Brown” video, s/t album release

By | August 2nd, 2011 | 5 Comments

Miami’s Lil Daggers play a breed of organ-grinding rock that sounds like it was dragged face down through a swamp. The band’s self-titled debut LP, released digitally in April and physically today, is built on pronounced tempo changes, emphatic thumps and thuds, muddy riffs, ‘60s pop, and searing organ chops, lending itself to cinematic interpretation. Enter director Michael J. Ruiz-Unger, whose stark video for Lil Daggers’ “Dada Brown” plays out like a grindhouse noir vignette. Unfolding at a slow-drip pace that mirrors the Daggers’ droning, post-mushroom-consumption sound, Ruiz-Unger’s starlit short (co-written with Daggers’ frontman Johnny Saraiva) features a smart ’71 Buick GS, a goateed and shotgun-toting boyfriend (Eddie Garcia), and a brunette resigned to her bullet-riddled fate (Christina Willow). Action!
