Brooklyn, NY based Dirty Projectors are set to release Bitte Orca, their 5th full-length album and first for Domino on June 8th 2009. The album was recorded in Portland, OR and Brooklyn, NY late last year. We’ve been told to keep what we’ve heard under lock and key; but we can tell it sounds absolutely great!
David Longstreth formed Dirty Projectors in 2002 and the group now consists of Angel Deradoorian, Amber Coffman, Brian Mcomber and David as principal members. Lead single Stillness Is The Move will precede the album on 18th May and will be available on 12″ and digital, with b-sides and a remix by Lucky Dragons.
Dirty Projectors will also be introducing an expanded 6 member live lineup with the addition of bassist Nat Baldwin and vocalist Haley Dekle for a number of live dates. The band will perform at this year’s SXSW in Austin, Texas before flying to the UK for an Arts Council tour with Polar Bear.
So if you’re out in lovely Texas this year, make sure you put this on your list of plenty and don’t miss out on what looks set to be a killer show!
