I know I’ve been slacking a bit on the ole’ blog this last week. But I have a good reason..it’s the season of finals, BUT they are over, and time is all I have. So to get back into the swing of things, and to prep you for my best of 2009 list Ive been compiling, I’m throwing some Dirty Projectors your way.This year saw the band release, Bitte Orca, an amazing, complex piece of indie rock awesomeness. They hit the Bowery Ballroom In NYC a few nights ago and courtesy of NYC Taper.com we’ve got an entire live set to download and listen to for free.
The set pulls from the new album heavily, which is a good thing. There is a smattering of older tracks and a new song, Ascending Melody (from the Temecula Sunrise EP). The Roots and David Byrne make guest appearances. The quality of the recording isnt CD PRO AUDIO! or something, but its certainly good enough.
