Dirty Projectors - New Attitude EP

Dirty Projectors
New Attitude EP
(2006, Marriage Records)

Dave Longstreth with his Dirty Projectors moniker has been producing some of the most discordantly pleasurable and intensely satisfying popcraft for some time now. With four full-length records under his belt now, those that are familiar with Longstreth’s musings won’t be surprised at the schizophrenic air his latest release. Every album he releases should be titled "New Attitude" because homie is a chameleon. The seven songs release compiles four bipolar gypsy pop romps and three live recordings. While the transition in production between the two distinct sets of songs is a bit drastic, the songs are undeniably magnificent. Its all feeding the hype for Longstreth’s upcoming 2007 full length. With an undying energy this little EP runs laps around most bands full length releases. Another worthy release to the oh-so-consistently-wonderful Dirty Projectors output.
