Dirty Projectors, 'Bitte Orca' (Domino)

Critical Mass
Label:

by SPIN Staff

The brainchild of Yale music-composition grad David Longstreth, Dirty Projectors have moved from being New York's most precociously overintellectual indie-rock outfit (previous albums conceptualized Black Flag and Don Henley) to something wholly unidentifiable. Longstreth's prickly surface belies a bright pop center: tart, sweet, and gushing all at once. "Temecula Sunrise" mingles prog bombast with tribal yips, while "Stillness Is the Move" could bump out of a Caribbean bazaar (or a Diplo mixtape). When female bandmates Amber Coffman and Angel Deradoorian keen that "there's nothing we can't do," it doesn't sound like an idle boast.
