Dirty Projectors | Bitte Orca

Domino (2009)
You're going to be hearing a lot more about this album than you might actually hear from it. Why? Because it's far simpler to succumb to a lulling, repetitive chorus of praise than it is to surrender to the pull of Dave Longstreth's often uncertain seas.

The moving pictures

Pattern Is Movement reanimate the past
If one way that bands tie themselves to the past is through sonic reference — Fleet Foxes calling forth Crosby, Stills and Nash, or Animal Collective channeling the Grateful Dead — then there's been a number of bands who tie themselves to the past through cultural reference.

Dancing with himself

Symphony of buds

Nat Baldwin and friends make a familiar but beguiling album
Apart from being an ephemeral player in the local music scene — he played at Strange Maine last fall, while living in Bar Harbor — New Hampshire-based upright bassist Nat Baldwin has some very influential friends.

Jeffrey Lewis’s Crass, and Dirty Projectors’ Black Flag
If the title teen of Juno can dismiss Sonic Youth as “just noise,” what would a representative of a generation for whom quiet is the new loud make of the even harsher sonic barrages of first-wave punk?

Life lines

Getting to the hard core of Big Bear
Scaring people away isn’t Big Bear’s primary objective.

Reelin’ ’n’ rockin’

Deer Tick runs the gamut
Deer Tick singer John McCauley’s lived-in anthems harken back to the old-school traditions of Nashville, a boozy world of dim lights, thick smoke, and loud, loud music.

They’ve got issues

The bookworm’s gift that keeps on giving
As newspapers and magazines slim and shift their focus to online content and revenue streams, it has become sadly commonplace to overlook the unique capabilities of periodically printed matter.

Nat Baldwin

Music seen at Strange Maine, October 11, 2007
On record, Baldwin’s songs are lushly arranged and well-populated with guitar and effects.
