The Dirty Projectors

Dirty Projectors are the project of Dave Longstreth, a former Yale student who left college to become one of the most prolific and unique indie singer/songwriters of the early 2000s. In early 2002 Longstreth released his first album, The Graceful Fallen Mango, under his own name on the This Heart Plays Records imprint. Largely recorded on four-track with the help of friends in like-minded projects such as Wolf Colonel and Dear Nora, the album introduced Longstreth's distinctive crooning voice and equally unique approach to arrangements and both lo-fi and hi-fi production. As he continued to record, Longstreth played shows with contemporaries like the Microphones, Bobby Birdman, and [[[[VVRSSNN]]]] (aka Yume Bitsu's Adam Forkner). Forkner helped record his next album, The Glad Fact, which was the first to bear the Dirty Projectors name and arrived on Western Vinyl in fall 2003.

This was followed quickly by Morning Better Last!, an album culled from three triple albums he recorded in 2001 and 2002; it was an Internet-only release on States Rights. Slaves' Graves & Ballads, which Longstreth described as "a song-journey for me singing with a ten-piece chamber group called the Orchestral Society for the Preservation of the Orchestra," arrived in early 2004 as a split release on Western Vinyl and Happy Happy Birthday to Me Records. The 2005 album The Getty Address was a Don Henley-themed concept album that was followed a year later by the New Attitude EP. Rise Above from 2007 reinterpreted songs from Black Flag's classic hardcore punk album Damaged, and then Bitte Orca appeared in 2009 with some of the band's most accessible songs to date. In 2010 the group collaborated with Björk on Mount Wittenberg Orca, an EP that benefitted the National Geographic Society Oceans Project; it was available only digitally for a year, then received a physical release on CD and vinyl in 2011. Their next proper full-length, Swing Lo Magellan, arrived in in the summer of 2012. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi

Why am I here and not over, over, over there? LOL! Pretty lame lyrics but otherwise a good song.
i love this band
I can dig on experiementa l music, but listening to this is like having a lobotomy with a dull butter knife, then told it isn'tgoing to hurt. This is painful!!! To an earlier comment..., no matter how you add it up the total sum is still "O'. You've heard, "never palce pearls and perfume on a pig"!
...ja...
Just leaving a comment for the sake of it. The Dirty Projectors are very hard to describe. I associate them with a math problem, you have to tear it down to the basics, before you can even begin to piece it all together. And when you finally do, you can appreciate it at a much greater capacity. It's so beautiful(es p e c i a l l y the "Slave's Graves& Ballads album"). I can't even fathom how they arrange such music.
ugh, I just don't get it. Why are all of my "musical" aquaintances so gaga over these guys?
while Bitte Orca is easily their best album in years, The Getty Address shouldn't be overlooked as a complete musical masterpiece.


so far ahead of a lot of other indie acts today, DP rule so hard. Their live shows are SPECTACULAR.
listen to Dirty Projectors and Georgia Anne Muldrow. These artists are giving listeners a glimspe of the future of music.
Wow! What the hell is this? I like...
The live performance on NPR's "World Cafe" was outstanding! I was inspired to start a TPD station on Pandora and I'm going to buy the new CD, "Bitte Orca."
saw them recently in san francisco - was AMAZING. so f-in good... kinda like a modernized sonic youth with some modest mouse mixed in...
