Rekindled, Dirty Projectors.

Rekindled, Dirty Projectors.

Any day that goes by without even so much as a transient burst of David Longstreth’s Dirty Projectors is one which somehow leaves me feeling strangely unfulfilled. And truth be known, I’ve thus far this year rather neglected Swing Lo Magellan so it’s something of a saving grace that they released this one over the weekend. There’s A Fire originally featured as the flipside to a limited white label release of Offspring Are Blank pressed especially to coincide with a show at New York’s Carnegie Hall last month, and it’s one to really rekindle the fires of intrigue as a bulbous bass line waltzes quite erratically with afrobeat-inspired snares. Longstreth’s vocal elastane as ever, it’s quite clearly a purposefully muddy recording, though that’s not to say it does anything to dirty the lucid flow of the luminary’s relentless outpour…

Swing Lo Magellan is out now on Domino.
