Dirty Projectors 'Dirty Projectors' (Domino)

Fusing sonic intricacies, captivating melodies and compelling storytelling, Dirty Projectors’ eighth LP is their most honest and affecting yet. ‘Keep Your Name’ is haunting and harrowing, ‘Death Spiral’ is built on endearing piano keys and lead singer David Longstreth’s wide-ranging falsetto flirts faultlessly on ‘Up In Hudson’. ‘Winner Take Nothing’ becomes frantic as Longstreth concedes “in losing you, I lost myself”, while ‘Ascent Through Clouds’ morphs from a minimal folk-style tale into glitchy electronica. ‘Cool Your Heart’ is the most ‘pop’ offering, mixing Dawn Richard’s summery vocal with Major Lazer-esque drums, and closer ‘I See You’ is an organ-pounding farewell.
