Dirty Projectors Release Two Free Singles
The critical darlings of 2009 start off the new year in a giving mood.
It may be a little while before Dave Longstreth and pals get around to releasing a proper follow-up to last year’s much panted-over breakthrough Bitte Orca. But it seems they have a recession-friendly plan in place to keep their fans on board.
Vinyl enthusiasts will be pleased to learn that the 7-inch single for Bitte outtakes “Ascending Melody” and “Emblem of the World” is out today via Domino Records’ Web site, but for those who can’t wait or simply can’t afford to shell out a few bucks the songs are available as free downloads at the band’s website.
Generosity aside, Dirty Projectors are getting their 2010 off to a highfalutin start with grown-up gigs at New York’s Lincoln Center and the somewhat less auspiciously named Walt Disney Concert Hall in L.A. with the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
