Dirty Projectors Bitte Orca on Vinyl LP + MP3!
Bitte Orca is the highly anticipated follow up album to 2007’s critically acclaimed, Rise Above, and the Dirty Projectors' Domino debut. David Longstreth formed the Dirty Projectors in 2002, and the band now consists of core member Amber Coffman, Brian Mcomber, Angel Deradoorian and Longstreth. Recorded in the fall of 2008 in Portland, OR and Brooklyn, NY, Bitte Orca is the band’s fifth and most successful album.
From the bright curtain-raising opener “Cannibal Resource” to the stunning off-kilter “Temecula Sunrise” and “Useful Chamber's” ornate harmonies, Bitte Orca contains the Projectors’ best individual songs to date. It’s a big rock album by design, and the results are both universal and singular. “Stillness Is The Move” and “Two Doves” were written specifically for the voices and temperaments of Coffman and Derardoorian, who take respective solo turns.
Bitte Orca’s idiosyncratic and sincere take on popular music is reminiscent of David Byrne, with whom the Dirty Projectors collaborated on “Knotty Pine” for the 2009 compilation Dark Was The Night. In many ways, Longstreth can be seen as this generation’s answer to Byrne, a distinctive torchbearer of labyrinthine song arrangements that go down easy.
180 Gram Vinyl in Gatefold Sleeve. Contains MP3 code for free download of the record.
