      Description
      Dirty Projectors & Wye Oak
      Dirty Projectors, hard to describe in words but here's a few... “There’s a world of cross-references in Dirty Projector’s music: stuttering modal riffs from Mali, the meandering melodies of opera or modern music theater, pygmy antiphonal vocals, Captain Beefheart, Zimbabwean and Congolese rock, King Crimson, Talking Heads, Dan Hicks and his Hot Licks.” – New York Times “[Longstreth] is (why pull punches?) a nobrow genius, who claims to find similar solaces in the work of Beethoven, Wagner, Zeppelin and Timberlake.” – Pitchfork “completely strange and oddly familiar at the same time” – David Byrne “This is scary, evocative music, like an Alan Lomax field recording of a dusty, punk troubadour from the imaginary past; Kid A covered under 80 years of dust and gloom, only exchange the robots and clones for forests and abandoned farmhouses. On The Glad Fact, Dave Longstreth is making his own f**ked-up version of American music." – Dusted Magazine. Andy Stack and Jenn Wasner of the Baltimore based duo Wye Oak have been playing together for nearly 12 years. Wye Oak describe their philosophy: “We’d like to think that if a song is good enough, it’ll stand on its own regardless of how much noise you pile on top. On the other hand, we do like noise.”
