20 Songs, 1 Hour 26 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

After spinning heads with Rise Above, an album that reimagined Black Flag’s Damaged purely from memory, Dirty Projectors drove home everything that made them special with Bitte Orca, sweetening their tense, knotty tunes with a sinuous, almost-R&B feel. Amber Coffman and Angel Deradoorian’s spectacular backing vocals are pushed to the fore, taking the lead to great effect on “Stillness Is the Move,” with Dave Longstreth’s meticulous arrangements now serving his most direct and unselfconsciously lovely songs to date.

Master Piece

I heard Julian Casablancas name drop this band in 2009. I dived into the album about 2 years later. Big mistake. I wish I knew about them since day one. This album has great beats, melodies, and harmonies. Yes, the music is weird, but I think all of the songs are "can't lose" like able.
