love this band, can't wait to hear this new stuff.

it's very bond theme. i like it but i feel like his singing maybe clicks better with the songs when it's sorta tight & frantic like the last rec.

two months pass...

I been thinking for three years that I hate this band. Tonight it shows, I really don't. They remind me a bit of Grizzly Bear, if the latter were any good. Plus, I like the girls.

title track on the new one is very dylanish

buh, Wednesday, 4 July 2012 23:30 (four years ago) Permalink

For sure--that track and "Impregnable Question" have a real New Morning feel to them.

Liking this a lot, moreso than their others.

New Morning, eh? Have not really been too into what I've heard of this band, but that certainly intrigues me!

tylerw, Thursday, 5 July 2012 21:40 (four years ago) Permalink

I've been hearing across the board that the new one is way way way better than anything else they've done. This is a band that I should love on paper but who in practice drive me way up the fucking wall so I'm cautiously intrigued.

I see you, Pineapple Teef (DJP), Thursday, 5 July 2012 21:51 (four years ago) Permalink

yeah mainly when i've listened to 'em i've thought "i get why people like this band but I DO NOT LIKE THIS BAND!" but i'll check the new one!

tylerw, Thursday, 5 July 2012 21:52 (four years ago) Permalink

if you didn't like their old stuff you probably won't like this one either.

i think there are two dirty projectors threads going? i said on the other one that the new one is more stripped down instrumentally and song structure-wise but it's still the same dude singing and writing songs so it's not like way different.

the other thread is a lot more stripped down structure-wise but it's still the same dudes writing posts

BULLSHIT

congratulations (n/a), Thursday, 5 July 2012 22:21 (four years ago) Permalink

it's true, i should go back and listen to the other albums, but they never appealed to me before. i also like the new grizzly bear single and never liked anything by them previously.

totally hear dylan/ mccartney moves, too

Is the new album streaming anywhere?

i'm into it, but Keep Your Name was even better (only came across it yesterday):

definitely feels like a solo project. the drums are very preset-y, but there is so much ear candy in the rest.

sam jax sax jam (Jordan), Thursday, 5 January 2017 19:55 (three months ago) Permalink

i like this. they are due for a new album and i doubt it will disappoint.

i'm keeping the flag waving...

Bee OK, Saturday, 7 January 2017 03:23 (three months ago) Permalink

I'm coming around to Keep Your Name but I found the lyrics made it an excellent contender for this thread: Songs where the singer/protagonist comes off as a serious dick without meaning to

I would be into DL dragging some of the Getty-ish orchestration back to the forefront though.

this new song is incredible... i can't wait for the new record now. i haven't cared about them in so long but this rules so hard, makes me want to revisit Bitte Orca and try Swing Lo Magellan again.

flappy bird, Wednesday, 18 January 2017 22:37 (three months ago) Permalink

btw the new one is self-titled, out February 10 via Domino.

01 Keep Your Name
02 Death Spiral
03 Up in Hudson
04 Work Together
05 Little Bubble
06 Winner Take Nothing
07 Ascent Through Clouds
08 Cool Your Heart
09 I See You

So... This is probably gonna be my favorite album of 2017, huh? All three songs so far has been pretty damn great. The rest is probably crap.

Frederik B, Wednesday, 18 January 2017 22:47 (three months ago) Permalink

love a 9 track album, can't wait.

"Maybe I could be with you / do the things that lovers do / slightly domesticate the truth / and write you 'Stillness Is The Move'"

This lyric upsets me

fgti, Wednesday, 18 January 2017 23:41 (three months ago) Permalink

"little bubble" is amazing. felt like their take on neo soul to me. i haven't really listened to them since bitte orca (aka college) but some of the other songs i've heard off this sounded pretty awesome. the opener is sick.

J0rdan S., Wednesday, 18 January 2017 23:43 (three months ago) Permalink

Breakup albums are one thing but these songs so far make me feel like I'm on a subway having to listen to a guy loudly berate his girlfriend in public

fgti, Wednesday, 18 January 2017 23:43 (three months ago) Permalink

lol from what i understand about the lyrics across the album....... um, i'm glad i'm not someone who hears lyrics first

love a 9 track album, can't wait.

lol it's a double LP though

i really wish you made a new thread, not sure why ILM is so afraid to make new threads these days. for instance, i had no idea there was a new Flaming Lips album as i didn't click on the generic thread.

Bee OK, Thursday, 19 January 2017 02:36 (three months ago) Permalink

anyways, very excited for this new album.

Bee OK, Thursday, 19 January 2017 02:36 (three months ago) Permalink

does he sing "while you drink a fifth from my ass"?

Sufjan Grafton, Thursday, 19 January 2017 02:59 (three months ago) Permalink

yeah i heard that too...

xxp i figured bumping this one made sense since it's self-titled, and one of the things i love most about ilx are that the threads span several years. but i would've made a new one if this wasn't a s/t

flappy bird, Thursday, 19 January 2017 04:12 (three months ago) Permalink

if only the lyrics were as subtle as the arrangements. like keep your name, it's an awkward listen.

i really dig this line, it's obviously a reference to Dylan's "Sara" ("I can still hear the sounds of those Methodist bells / I’d taken the cure and had just gotten through / Staying up for days in the Chelsea Hotel / Writing 'Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands” for you').

really glad i can ignore lyrics so easily with this sort of music

http://www.baeblemusic.com/musicblog/10-6-2016/amber-coffman-gives-her-own-take-on-her-breakup-with-dirty-projectors-frontman.html

This new track from Coffman, entitled "All To Myself," seems to address the same topic as "Keep Your Name," albeit from a very different perspective

Never listened to this last year

curmudgeon, Thursday, 19 January 2017 18:55 (three months ago) Permalink

the spoken breakdown in keep your name is excruciating. Up in Hudson is beautiful ototh.

ILX will probably be interested to know Dawn Richard is on this album (singing a song co-written by Solange, I believe)

Evan R, Thursday, 19 January 2017 20:10 (three months ago) Permalink

Noticed the cover is a riff on the motif from the cover of Bitte Orca and Slaves' Graves and Ballads. But I can't tell if that's like... a giant chocolate sculpture or wood.

Dave's singing has dramatically gotten better. I can't believe how good he sounds on little bubble.

josh az (2011nostalgia), Thursday, 19 January 2017 21:49 (three months ago) Permalink

imho dave's singing was always great, but he deffo more refined/practiced now
