POP MUSIC | RECORD RACK

In Brief

* * * Jen Trynin, "Gun Shy Trigger Happy," Squint/Warner Bros.

September 21, 1997|Sara Scribner

On the follow-up to "Cockamamie," Trynin thrashes through themes of love, betrayal, guilt and loss, somehow squeezing true novelty out of ancient obsessions. From the cool pulse of "Writing Notes" to the guitar sass of "Love Letter," the music sashays through soft electronics, rowdy pop and scrappy rock. The center of gravity, however, is Trynin's voice, with a blend of cozy warmth and arm's-length stubbornness that might be emotionally addicting.
