dirty projectors release a definitive 2 cd deluxe set of last year's 'bitte orca' album. the second 12 track cd features never before released tunes from a very special and intimate acoustic performance at new york's other records, rare vinyl only b-sides and, to top it all, a brand new, amazing cover of bob dylan's 'as i went out one morning'. the follow-up to 2007's critically acclaimed and domino debut 'rise above'. their fifth release is a big rock album by design - it's artful, adventurous and ecstatic avant-garde pop. its idiosyncratic and sincere take on popular music is reminiscent of david byrne with whom dirty projectors collaborated on 'knotty pine' for the 2009 compilation 'dark was the night'. in many ways, group leader david longstreth could be seen as this generation's answer to byrne, a distinctive torchbearer of labyrinthine song arrangements that go down easy. from curtain-raising opener 'cannibal resource' to 'temecula sunrise's metal-jazz spin on sunny '70s rock, and 'useful chamber's minimal electronics, ornate vocal harmonies, and beefheart does graceland instrumentation, 'bitte orca' contains the projectors' best songs to date.
