MUSIC REVIEW: Lamp Lit Prose by Dirty Projectors
DIRTY PROJECTORS ‘LAMP LIT PROSE’
Released: July 13
Label: Domino Recording Company
Dirty Projectors was formed in 2002 in Brooklyn, N.Y. They’ve had 29 different members revolve through the group within the past 16 years, and now they’re down to four, with their eighth studio album, “Lamp Lit Prose.”
Dirty Projectors is an experimental rock group, but this new, 10-track album just feels extraordinarily experimental. There are numerous sounds and elements that fit into just one song, but they’re never used in the same way.
Lead vocalist David Longstreth somehow pushes all of the different sounds to the background, letting his voice take the forefront, which makes for easier listening.
KEY CUTS: “Zombie Conqueror,” “What Is The Time”
