Dirty Projectors, "Bitte Orca" (Domino)
Another in the seemingly endless well of artsy alternative bands coming from Brooklyn these days, this indie outfit combines all manner of styles and sounds, from agitpop to art-rock to R&B and more. But what else would you expect from a group whose last offering was a cover of Black Flag songs. The London Times compares Dirty Projectors to Talking Heads, stating "both bands share that rare ability to make music that is so obviously clever, but also utterly listenable."
