On Repeat: Dirty Projectors – Stillness Is The Move

Posted in Music Releases, On Repeat, Tracks with tags , , , on May 11, 2009 by musicmuleblog

Dirty Projectors are Dave Longstreth and band. In it’s current incarnation the group now consists of Angel Deradoorian, Amber Coffman, Brian Mcomber and David as principal members. Dave is considered as somewhat of a musical visionary within the current Brooklyn scene that he has helped to spawn. ‘Stillness In The Move’ is the new single taken from Dirty Projectors forthcoming album ‘Bitte Orca’ due to be released June 9th through Domino Records.

It’s by far the most accessible track I’ve heard Dave put his name to. Unlike most of the material Dave’s unique vocals don’t feature strongly, the honour is left to Amber to carve out what is an irresistible pop/r’n’b/dance vocal which some may be surprised to hear from the band. Those who know them better though may be aware of Dave’s fondness for Mariah Carey (!) and a soulful r’n’b tinged tune like that of 2007 album Rise Above’s stunning title track so it’s not all surprises.

They’ve recently collaborated with David Byrne (Talking Heads) on ‘Knotty Pine’ for the Red Hot ‘Dark Was The Night’ compilation and are supporting TV On The Radio in the U.S. Watch out world, Dirty Projectors are coming for you!
