Dave Longstreth @ Bowery Ballroom, 2009 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
DP

Not only is it now confirmed that Wye Oak & Purity Ring are the openers of Dirty Projectors' upcoming show at the Prospect Park Bandshell, the date is just one night on a big summer tour for Dirty Projectors that starts in Toronto on July 6th and ends in Philadelphia on August 18th (which means maybe it really ends at a TBA 2nd NYC show??). A presale is going on now for all just-announced dates which are listed below. Some of the dates are with Wye Oak, Some with Purity Ring. Some with both

As previously posted, DP released a new song on to the Internet, and that song comes from their new album Swing Lo Magellan which is out July 10 in the U.S. and July 9 internationally via Domino. A press release reads:

"It's an album of songs, an album of songwriting," says Longstreth.

The songs of Swing Lo Magellan are culled from a sprawling twelve months of constant writing and recording in a weird house in Delaware County, New York (four hours northwest of the city). Longstreth, who produced and mixed, wrote seventy new songs and beats. The band -- Amber Coffman (vocals & guitar), Nat Baldwin (Bass), Brian McOmber (Drums) & Haley Dekle (vocals) - - joined him periodically, rehearsing the new music more or less constantly in the house's A-frame attic (vocalist Angel Deradoorian is on hiatus). The twelve songs of Swing Lo Magellan were winnowed down from about forty finished demos....

The full tracklist is with all the dates below....

I smell a 4-months-later expanded version double disc with deluxe packaging and an ugly tshirt.

Too bad about Purity Ring being on the bill!

Anytime a trendy band loses something, it's alright by me :)

Dear Universe,

Please make this shitty band go away once and for all.

There are so many quiet giants among us that need recognition and in these times mediocrity gets rewarded way too much. We need good music in this world to uplift us, not this mindless drivel.

Signed,

A music fan that cares way too much about content and melody
