Dirty Projectors stream the second single from their new record “Swing Lo Magellan.” We’ve already heard “Gun Has No Trigger” and seen its deceptively simple video which was actually layered with some seriously heavy cultural commentary from Dave Longstreth, who directed it. Today we get a new track, “Dance For You.”
This one is a sweetly laid-back, almost folksy tune in contrast to the discordant “Gun Has No Trigger.” It’s also surprisingly spare, consisting mostly of a single guitar riff, some light percussion and Longstreth’s solo vocal. Noticeably absent is the female vocals on the track, which usually provide a layered sonic texture as Amber Coffman is vocally nowhere to be found and Angel Deradoorian will unfortunately be absent from the album completely (she’s currently on “hiatus” from the band). “Swing Lo Magellan” is out July 10 on Domino Records.
