DIRTY PROJECTORS - SWING LO MAGELLAN - NEW ALBUM RELEASED 9TH JULY 2012
Dirty Projectors | 25/06/12
The Dirty Projectors are to release their 6th album 'Swing Lo Magellan' on 9th July 2012 on Domino Records.
The songs of Swing Lo Magellan are culled from a sprawling twelve months of constant writing and recording in a weird house in Delaware County, New York (four hours north west of the city). David Longstreth, who produced and mixed, wrote seventy new songs and beats. The band-Amber Coffman (vocals & guitar), Nat Baldwin (bass), Brian McOmber (drums) & Haley Dekle (vocals) - joined him periodically, rehearsing the new music more or less constantly in the house's A-frame attic. The twelve songs of Swing Lo Magellan were winnowed down from about forty finished demos. The finished recordings bear the impress of this informal working style: the album is a collection of moments: accidental, fortuitous,spontaneous. The performance sfeel warm and imperfect. Unguarded intimacy is some what of a new look for this band, and it turns out it's a very good look.
