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.
