LofthW: Dirty Projectors
I’ve loved this band since I accidentally mistook them for another band in 2005. Then, in 2007 they released Rise Above, a concept album “re-imagining [Black Flag]’s Damaged from memory” which, after two years is a constant play for me. In Bitte Orca, they seem to have taken a cleaner, poppier approach. But then suddenly, layers and layers of textures and harmonies begin to unfold, and keep unfolding. (Kind of like in that N*sync song, ‘Pop Music.’) Stellar vocals, ingenious guitar. I hope you like it as much as I do.
What a great cover, huh?
Be sure to also listen to the song ‘Knotty Pine’ on their Myspace. It’s their collaboration with David Byrne. The pairing is perfect, I can’t believe it took so long.
