DIRTY PROJECTORS | SWING LO MAGELLAN

DOMINO

Brooklyn collective Dirty Projectors are out with their sixth album Swing Lo Magellan and it is a surprising and welcome departure from their characteristic eclectic math-rock meets afro pop sound. The follow-up to 2009’s Bitte Orca is looser and less eccentrically erratic, resembling something closer to soul and R&B. Frontman/songwriter David Longstreth retains Dirty Projectors’ uniqueness while venturing into more personal and emotional territory, resulting in their most accessible album to date. Standout tracks include opener “Offspring Are Blank”, the title track, and “Gun Has No Trigger.” – Written by JFelton
