Dirty Projectors

Dirty Projectors released a digital 7" of unreleased Bitte Orca session outtakes today (1/11) through Domino. The two tracks on it (previously available only on the UK-only "Temecula Sunrise" EP), "Ascending Melody" and b-side "Emblem of the World," are available as free downloads through the band's website and via the widget embedded below.

Their only currently announced NYC show is February 19th at Lincoln Center's Allen Room (as part of the American Songbook series). They're supposed to also do a short set at this year's Tibet House US benefit (at Carnegie Hall on Friday, February 26th), but they still don't appear on the lineup which now includes Gogol Bordello, Regina Spektor, and "Additional artists to be announced" in addition to Philip Glass, Baaba Maal, Patti Smith & Pierce Turner. Tickets are still on sale.

Dirty Projectors collaborator David Byrne is giving a free talk in Brooklyn tonight (1/11).

The free songs, a note from the band, and tour dates for their upcoming New Zealand/Australia tour in early March are below...

You enter your e-mail address, then they'll send you a link to the download via e-mail.

Wait a little while and if the e-mail isn't in your inbox, at least check your spam folder.

I just order the copy of the 7" from the US link in the email http://www.dominorecordco.us/usa/singles/11-01-10/ascending-melody/?n=a0dfe9b45004e84330ee&t=98ca520693342b14

If you play the 7" backwards while riding on a llama you can see the future beyond the recession.

Oh c'mon 1:43, all the cool kids are doin' it.

@ 11:56, is that a complement or an insult?

H&O are legends.

2:06-then i guess i should TRY to become cool like them and tune in.

Neither. It was a joke. Much like DP.

i am projecting that the dirty projectors are going to start thinking very soon that they need to give up the dream and get 9-5 regular jobs.

Even the fucking venues they play sound pretentious

the dirty projectors are actually robots that are stuck on the "shitty gimmick" preset.

I got the e-mail and downloaded the Zip file. But when I try to extract the MP3s, it asks for a password. Anyone have this problem or know what the password is?

Posted by Anonymous | January 11, 2010 3:45 PM

i have the password problem too. no solution found on the net yet...

Posted by annie momus | January 11, 2010 4:16 PM

HEY DIPSHITS!!!! Way to get lots of free press today but still fail on the password provisions.

Who cares about the link? They suck and believe me you've heard crap music like theres a million times before if you live in BK. pffft.

Those benefit shows always suck. Bands play like 2-3 songs each and they cost like 50$ for upper deck seats.

Oh, and what about those question marks on Sunday's text in the concert poster below? No, that isn't saving a spot for a Smiths reunion or U2 debut on the Coachella stage, it's the way that Yorke presents himself as a solo star, the marquee at his Orpheum concert had the same punctuational flourish.
