Adhering to their trademark orchestral overlays and void of redundancy, the party of six, David Longstreth (vocals, guitar), Amber Coffman (vocals, guitar), Angel Deradoorian (vocals, keys, samples), Brian Mcomber (drums), Nat Baldwin (bass) and Haley Dekle (vocals), define the gold standard of parlor-pop with a romantically seedy setting. The urban-alternative Brooklynites go huge on crisp material for all ears this summer. Catch their noteworthy appearance in Brooklyn July 10 @ Prospect Park Bandshell, and again in Chicago for Pitchfork Festival July 13-15.
Somewhere in the air of Nat King Cole’s Nature Boy and the musical stylings of Matthew Bellamy (Muse) emerges a David Longstreth biggie, Gun With No Trigger, as Dirty Projectors sends a post-dated gasp with a sneak peak of their album Swing Lo Magellan (out July 10 on Domino Records). Feverish, frank and always sound forward, the DP tribe holds nothing back as they catapult themselves into new musical terrain with every release. Choral flexes, bass breaks and major head bobs later, this single spins into the band’s sixth album, following a spotlight March single with Major Lazer (Get Free). This round hits big sound beyond its simplicity as vocals take precedence over the unison of stories and sonance, “The album is a collection of moments: accidental, fortuitous, spontaneous.” – DP
