dirty projectors swing lo magellan 400x400 Album Stream: Dirty Projectors   Swing Lo Magellan

It’s been three year’s since Dirty Projectors‘ critically acclaimed breakout album Bitte Orca, but as soon as we got to hear “Gun Has No Trigger,” the first single from Swing Lo Magellan, we knew the wait had been worth it. On first listen, this is the band’s most accessible album to date, with bright, sometimes poppy melodies complementing some of David Longstreth’s more esoteric tendencies. Take a listen to the full album stream below – premiered by both The New York Times (plus an interview) and The Guardian.
