Dirty Projectors – Lamp Lit Prose

Scarcely a year after the release of the self-titled Dirty Projectors LP, Dave Longstreth’s band returns with a new album that is, in pretty much every way, the YANG to the yin of that record. Coming in at 10 songs, 37 minutes, «Lamp Lit Prose» is The Straight Story to the s/t’s Blue Velvet; Punch-Drunk Love to the s/t’s Magnolia. «Lamp Lit Prose», the eighth Dirty Projectors LP, is an album of light and lightness, tenderness and care, melody and fascination and beauty.
