10 Songs, 37 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

If 2017’s Dirty Projectors was the band’s dark night of the soul, Lamp Lit Prose marks a vibrant rebirth. Bright, colorful, and bursting with hope, the music here splits the difference between pop instinct and avant-garde ambition, live-band rigor and super-synthetic production—think Talking Heads for the 2000s. And where lead Projector Dave Longstreth’s songs have, in the past, tended toward high concepts, here he dwells on the rush of simple things: optimism (“Right Now”), romance (“Break-Thru”), and pure, unfiltered excitement (“I Feel Energy”). It features assists from Rostam, Amber Mark, Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold, and HAIM.

Step away from mic occasionally!

I like this more with each listen. It would be better if the talented singer would allow more musical interludes without vocal track(s) here and there.
I wish you continued success!

First!

I’m first! But anyways, this album is amazing! Just makes me feel happy because of how upbeat it is! The guitar playing, Dave’s voice, the features, his finger-picking, and the electronic instruments are all done fantastically! The guitar just sounds great, and you can see how skilled Dave really is.
