“There’s a world of cross-references in Dirty Projector’s music: stuttering modal riffs from Mali, the meandering melodies of opera or modern music theater, pygmy antiphonal vocals, Captain Beefheart, Zimbabwean and Congolese rock, King Crimson, Talking Heads, Dan Hicks and his Hot Licks.”—New York Times
Style-smashing Brooklyn art rock ensemble Dirty Projectors is a well-tuned pop supercollider. Leader Dave Longstreth’s compositional brilliance shines through rapid-fire sonic changes and fastidious pop /punk /soul songs that careen from tense to joyful to irreverent, achieving a soundscape that’s “completely strange and oddly familiar at the same time,” says David Byrne. Hear what lies ahead as DP premieres music from its forthcoming CD (and other surprises) in this specially constructed Walker evening.
