As much as brilliant Brooklyn collective Dirty Projectors tends to utterly defy genres and as much as I know that they reel in fellow artist fans from all across the music spectrum, it still came as an unexpected surprise to find out that the band’s latest single features R&B pop chanteuse, 

D∆WN, or Dawn Richards formerly of Danity Kane. Don’t get me wrong, this is pleasant, eager, welcome surprise. D∆WN has been making massive waves with her music this past year, and her soulful vocals are a perfect accompaniment to Dirty Projectors’ whimsically warped, fidgety agitated sound on Cool Your Heart. In fact, she reminds me heavily of Amber Coffman on the song. There’s a glossy coat of sweetness that covers this fascinating tune, yet another fine taste from Dirty Projectors’ long awaited seventh full length. Self titled Dirty Projectors is due to arrive February 24th via Domino. Pre-order, here.

I’m certain some of my friends are going to be in great spirits once they find out from me that new Dirty Projectors has arrived. The Brooklyn experimental and art rock group teased us earlier this week by posting a short mysterious clip of music to all their socials. Sure enough, Little Bubble has arrived, and it’s a floridly reflective drifter. This likely taste a forthcoming new album seems to decompress time itself with its languid drawl and melancholic balladry. We find ourselves in that “little bubble” with Dirty Projectors. Its lush arrangement and dissonant warping are accompanied by meditative visuals in its music video. You can purchase Little Bubble now via iTunes.

OFFICIAL VID: Midnight Masses – Broken Mirror

July 11, 2014

If you’re in the mood for some super woozy and languid chillwave flavored music, check out this new single and video, Broken Mirror, from Midnight Masses. The band was formed as a side project by members of …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead (which is still one of the longest freaking band names I know). What’s even cooler is that Hayley Dukle of Dirty Projectors features on the tune and its video with dreamy, foggy vocals. The trippy, psychedelic Broken Mirror will be on Midnight Masses’ album Departures, out July 22 on Superball Music.

OFFICIAL VID: Dirty Projectors – Impregnable Question

October 25, 2013

Dirty Projectors released their final video for a track off of 2012’s Swing Lo Magellan today. The beautiful video for Impregnable Question was filmed in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. The scenery fits the lovely, simple, folksy tune and its saccharine chorus. Did anyone else start thinking of Forrest Gump while watching this?

Super Cool Covers

September 10, 2013

Greetings on a busy day, but hello, here I am! Let’s begin with a covers post, because there’s a handful of super cool ones that popped up on the internetz. New Zealand star Lorde did an impressive cover of Yeezy’s Hold My Liquor live. Watch the decent quality live clip below. Next, popular UK band Bastille covered the love it or hate it Miley Cyrus song We Can’t Stop. Their version is totally different from the original and a very interesting rendition with beautiful strings and Dan’s amazing voice. They also mix in snippets of some surprise tunes. It’s not just a cover. You’ll see what I mean, wink wink. Finally, check out psych rock outfit Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s cover of Dirty Projectors’ Swing Low Magellan. It’s gorgeous.

Sticking with the off kilter indie pop on this one with the really unique and eccentric sounding Oyster by Nothankyou. It’s the debut song from a duo made up of Olga Bell (Dirty Projectors) and Tom Vek (remember him?). It’s a jittery, jangly, electric, super artsy piece of music. There are a few very St. Vincent moments in the track, minus Annie Clark’s incredible guitar riffs. The single drops on limited edition 7" come early August as a double A side with Nothankyou’s Know Yourself on Moshi Moshi Records. Know Yourself is a sick, ear perking track, too. Check it out below. I’d like to hear a heavy industrial house remix of these tracks.
