Ooooh new dirty projectors then?


#141

it’s fine


#142

that’s not quite as controversial an opinion as I was hoping for


#143

But in other, more accurate ways, it is controversial


#144

I think it’s pretty joyful. Zombie Conquerer is great. Looking forward to when I know all the songs well enough that I can yowl along in the car


#145

IT’S A BRAND
IT’S A PRODUCT
IT’S A LIFESTYLE


#146

hadn’t even understood that was what he was blurting out. Enjoying the weird double Dave panning too much. There we go, already another bit I can sing along to


#147

What Is The Time is also totally amazing. Love it when he leans into the rnb


#148

Zombie Conqurer is awesome right enough. THAT RIFF


#149

Last album was better

But Breakthrough is a tune


#150

On first listen, I find that it’s kind of somewhere between Dirty Projectors (overt R&B’ness) and Bitte Orca / Swing Lo (yer skittery guitars and that).

I think ‘That’s A Lifestyle’ is still my highlight for the moment, but I think more listens will reveeeeaaalll


#151

If anyone in Glasgow is interested their gig in a couple of weeks has been moved to King Tuts (was at the art school previously). Seems small for them, but should be good!


#152

Still can’t decide whether to go to one of the Village Underground shows. It’s working out at pretty much £35 for a ticket, which is pretty steep. I’m really enjoying the new album and feel like I’ll regret it if I don’t go, but I saw this performance the other day and… well… it’s not very good.

Can anyone vouch for the quality? Maybe outside of a radio studio they can do it justice.


#153

Really surprised that this seems to be touted as a return to form after the self-titled. Beyond the first 4 tracks it’s patchy as hell. Whilst the self-titled has flaws, and this has a more traditional Dirty Projectors sound and a couple of bangers, I’d say that the former is a much better album overall.

Then again I think most people would argue that I’m a bad Dirty Projectors fan. Would genuinely rank the albums I’ve heard as Swing Lo… > Self-Titled > Bitte Orca > Lamp-Lit Prose


#154

There’s a genuinely great album spread across the two I think.

Keep Your Name
Up in Hudson
Little Bubble
I See You
Right Now
It’s a Lifestyle
Zombie Conquerer
I Found It In U
What Is The Time
I Wanna Feel It All

Not necessarily in that order…


#155

They were excellent at HAVEN yesterday right enough


#156

i’ll see them playing in berlin this tuesday with felicia douglass singing.
looking forward to it


#157

Seeing them in Leeds tonight. Anyone seen them on this tour yet?


#158

Yeah, saw them in Glasgow yesterday - you’re in for a treat!


#159

Awesome :slight_smile: who was the support for you?


#160

Westerman, but I missed them. My friend said they sounded like Phil Collins :man_shrugging:
