Dirty Projectors - Bitte Orca

Dirty Projectors is a six-piece collaboration from Brooklyn, New York. Their new album, Bitte Orca is packed with exhilarating songs that urge you to move. Each song has a completely different feel. Yet they all integrate the upbeat synthesizer sounds that are so characteristic of the band and the beautiful voices of each of the girl members.
Amber Coffman, Angel Deradoorian, and Haley Dekle have an ability of reaching insanely high-pitched notes. Together they create a harmonization that sounds like a hardcore a’capella choral. Their sound gets most interesting when they are “Hocketing”: as they syncopate their voices while harmonizing at the same time. This innovative technique is predominant in the songs “Cannibal Resource” and “No Intention”. Both of these songs, as most of their compositions, are led by Dave Longstreth and accompanied by the female vocalists. Yet some of the best pieces are those sung individually by the girls. The song “Two Doves” is the most beautiful in the album. As her name proves, Angel Deradoorian, truly has the voice of an angel. Her voice is so soft and sweet, that it reaches the heart. This is the most laid back track in the entire album. The rest of songs are electric and fast. “Bitte Bitte Orca” is a perfect introduction track to the album. It has uncanny violin sounds that mix up with guitar riffs and ambient sounds. It is representative of the exhilaratingly electric sounds that compose this great band.
