Dirty Projectors – Dirty Projectors

Latest album from the art-rock band led by Dave Longstreth, most famous for their critically acclaimed 2009 album Bitte Orca. The entire album is inspired by his breakup with former collaborator Amber Coffman (lead vocalist on Dirty Projectors’ most well known song “Stillness is the Move”). The lyrics reflect the emotional toll of the end of a relationship, but also deal with the creative differences that happen in the breakup of a band. Sonically, the album sounds like a mix of the electronic sound of Bon Iver’s latest combined with the brass-focused art-rock of tUnE-yArDs or St. Vincent, with a heavy dose of modern R&B and hip hop (Frank Ocean and Kanye West in particular). A very experimental but highly captivating album.
