Night two of a three-night residency with Dirty Projectors!
Lamp Lit Prose is described as “the yang to the yin” of Dirty Projectors. Where that self-titled effort found Longstreth expressing his loneliness through glitchy dance songs, this new record brings back bright guitars and intricate vocal harmonies. A press release describes it as “a recommitment to the sounds and ideals of Dirty Projectors, embracing the band’s trademarks while pushing forward the sonic envelope.” As a first listen, Dirty Projectors have shared the video for “Break-Thru”, a clear return to new wave-y indie built off dancing guitar work and even harmonica. Longstreth sings of a woman who “opens my days like she always knew,” name dropping Julian Casablancas and Middle Earth along the way. Check out the track via its bird-filled clip, directed by Pecknold’s brother Sean Pecknold, below:
