Dirty Projectors: Tour, Live Video, Obsession With Black Flag + MP3
By: Spacelab Research Staff Dirty Projectors, aka Dave Longstreth and friends, have announced the arrival both a new album channeling Black Flag, and a new Take Away show from La Blogoteque. So many things to cover! Watch me break it down:
The Take Away show, from the french blog La Bogoteque, features Dirty Projectors in the heart of New York's Greenwich Village, playing songs for the people standing nearby and then walking around with the camera in tow. The result is an interesting mix of urban chaos and haunting music as Dave and the girls sing a few songs.
If that's not enough for you, there's a new album in the works, a reworking of the Black Flag album Damaged. Dave recently came across an old tape case for the album that was missing the tape. After some thinking, he decided he wanted to recreate the album on his own, from memory. The result is an album titled Rise Above, due out on September 11th on Dead Oceans. It was recorded on a 4-track recorder without ever reslistening to the album.
Then you can combine the two experiences above by seeing the live show at any of the dates listed below. The shows are with Yacht, Ecstatic Sunshine and Vampire Weekend depending on location.
