While You’re Here

October 23, 2012

While You’re Here is a preview off Dirty Projectors’ upcoming new EP About to Die. It’s a string heavy, simple, yet lush, two minute piece. It’s somber and beautiful. What’s really special about the tune is the song was written the day of Gerard Smith’s wake. The late TV on the Radio member succumbed to cancer last year, if you might remember. It was a sad affair, and happened right before they toured for stand out, excellent 2011 album Nine Types of Light. One of the first shows they did upon ending their brief hiatus was the very one I attended in San Francisco. This is a well deserved, moving tribute. RIP Gerard. Love you, TV on the Radio.

OFFICIAL VID: Dirty Projectors – About To Die

September 20, 2012

Brooklyn experimental rock band Dirty Projectors have been busy busy busy these days with their new album, incredible short film, member collaborations with other artists (ahem, Major Lazer?), and other things. Yet, they’ve found the time to announce a new EP titled About To Die which drops in early November. There will be 3 whole new songs on that EP. In celebration of the announcement, Dirty Projectors dropped a new video for their song About To Die off their recent album Swing Lo Magellan. There’s a lot of overlap with that short film Hi Custodian, which I’ve yet to get around to watching again properly.
