“It’s crazy what you can do with a human voice, or a couple of human voices. It’s so basic and it’s so direct”, lead singer David Longstreth once said in an interview. That notion is probably the best way to introduce you to the Dirty Projectors, of band of highly complex vocal and instrumental pyrotechnics that astound you with their complexity almost immediately. Singers will go in and out of harmony in totally unique ways, and you can tell from a minute into songs like http://genius.com/Dirty-projectors-cannibal-resource-lyrics that there is no other band that can use voices and music tech quite like DP.
DP is modern art music.
Founded by Yale dropout David Longstreth, the Brooklyn-based DP grew and shifted over time. Singing talents like http://genius.com/artists/Amber-coffman, now a star in her own right, buoyed the group over time as it traveled from art-buff novelty to Indie hit, growing more accessible (for better or worse) with each album. DP continues to push the boundaries of music and experiment with new ways to rock.
