Mp3 of the Week: Air Traffic Controller "The Work" -- June 12 @ Brighton Music Hall

The job of an AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLER is intense. So when former US Navy air traffic controller Dave Munro sings on “The Work,” “Trying to be perfect but I’m not/In this line of work that’s how you’ve got to be/So many details that we need to oversee/Climbing and then descending rapidly,” he’s giving you insight to his heart’s weary cockpit. Despite the heaviness of the content, Munro’s words glide over featherweight indie-pop. Air Traffic Controller’s sophomore record, the Bleu-produced Nordo, created via a $12,000 Kickstarter campaign, builds on the bouncy demos he first crafted while deployed overseas a few years ago.

His next tour of duty is much safer: ATC release Nordo Tuesday, June 12 at Brighton Music Hall in Allston on a melody-mad bill with Will Dailey, Nemes, and Friendly People, then perform acoustically at four area Newbury Comics throughout the month: June 16 @ Natick (acoustic); June 21 @ Norwood (full band); June 30 @ Leominster (acoustic, 2 pm); and June 30 @ Nashua, NH (acoustic, 6pm). In the meantime, give “The Work” a proper landing right now on your summer playlist.
