Featured Release

Lamp Lit Prose

Dirty Projectors: Lamp Lit Prose
Genre: Indie-Pop/Folk/Experimental
Label: Domino Recording Co

The experimental indie group Dirty Projectors are unveiling their 10th proper LP, a more hopeful sounding follow-up to the dejected, self-titled, and essentially solo Dave Longstreth record.  For as shattered as he was during that album, Longstreth employed some of his most experimental production ideas to date, en route to possibly the group’s most interesting – even if divisive – release.  In stark contrast to forlorn, reflective singles like ‘Keep Your Name’ or ‘Little Bubble’, ‘Break-Thru’ is a bouncy, sunny pop tune that retains the the experimental and R&B qualities of Dirty Projector’s preceding release.  If it’s any sign of what is to come, then we can expect Lamp Lit Prose to be another stud in Longstreth’s vastly growing collection of odd but fun indie pop.
