Dirty Projectors have quickly become one of my favorite bands of the recent years.
To put it plainly, they are extremely odd and eccentric. Their style of music is unlike anything I have ever heard.
The vocals are distinct. The guitar work is off-time (at times), the drum beats are deep in
the pocket, and the addition of dueling female vocals takes the ship even farther from land.
While they have garnered a strong following over time, they aren’t nearly as popular as their talent suggests they should be. I attribute that to them just not being everyone’s cup of tea.
Regardless, Swing Lo Magellan is another home run from a great indie band.
