Dirty Projectors
"Swing Lo Magellan" (Vinyl)

I'm glad to have finally acquired a copy of this album; I'd been listening to it on the ipod for a while and was continually impressed by the album.  Purchasing it for myself was only a matter of time.

I don't know if anyone had heard of Dirty Projectors before 2009's "Bitte Orca" but this album (released 2012) is actually their seventh full-length album.    Existing along the fringes of public consciousness has its benefits, including recording with Bjork.

Bandleader Dave Longstreth has a unique taste for blending lo-fi/hi-fi sounds together and building trippy beat patterns based on poly-rhythmic motives.  Rather than analyze, it's far more fun to just sit back and enjoy.
