Dirty Projectors – Swing Lo Magellan


Released on: July 10, 2012

Can’t Skip Tracks: Dance For You, Gun Has No Trigger, See What She Seeing

The best from Dirty Projectors yet. The band has things down to a science on Magellan: off beat bongo slaps on different layers of the songs, switching through troubadour folk music, to funky jangly guitar tunes, to rhythmic African like breakdowns. The constructed chaos is like musical bliss, a confident step into the music spotlight, beyond just a cult following. Dave Longstreth’s leads a talented group that doesn’t overproduce their music, works endlessly on their craft, and has fun at the same time. The album is a celebration of stumbling melodies and electric tunes synchronized with morbid poetry.
