New Dirty Projectors

dirty projectors
Well, from the sound of "No More," off the forthcoming Dirty Projectors (MySpace) album, Rise Above (due out on September 11 on Dead Oceans), Dave Longstreth -- the "musical director" -- has been listening to a lot of gospel. This makes everything so interesting! "No More" sounds like a seamless integration of what you think when someone mentions the band -- noisy, noodling, experimental, start-stop, jazzy rock music -- with, well ... soul! Longstrth's vocals have become more confident; he's got more control over his high warble, and a whole slew of gospel-esque backing singers help him out.

Now, I don't know if the whole LP will be like this track, but I sure hope "No More" is a good representation!
This little bit was in the press info ... "On the album, Longstreth re-imagines songs from one of the most beloved albums of his youth, Black Flag's Damaged." Mind, the LP will not be a covers album, but still ...
Very, very excited over here ... this seems like a perfect "next step" for the Brooklynites ...
Dirty Projectors - No More
