Wednesday’s Jam of the Day: The Dirty Projectors


Many of you were likely fans of The Dirty Projectors and their critically acclaimed album, Bitte Orca. Well, in promotion of their upcoming summer tour, The Dirty Projectors will be launching a newalbum, Swing Lo Magellan. This link will take you to their early release and single, “Gun Has No Trigger.”

“Gun Has No Trigger” is definitely quintessential Dirty Projectors but it goes further in maturing the band’s musical identity which is a pleasure to hear. It’s cool listening to the crescendo of harmony throughout the song. The voices are , as Jamz editor, AB puts it, almost reminiscent of some of the popular choral approaches of music from band’s ofthe late 50’s into 60’s but with a jazzy hue. Anyway, it’s an enchanting wave of guitarless song and a nice taste of what we can expect from this heavily anticipated new album.
