$5 MP3 Album Deal: Dirty Projectors’ ‘Swing Lo Magellan’
SoAndyway   |  

2013-01-08-Swing Lo Magellan

As part of Amazon’s monthly $5 MP3 album deals for January 2013, Dirty ProjectorsSwing Lo Magellan is on sale for only $5.00.

Songs jump and twist in ways you won’t see coming on Swing Lo Magellan, and you will never know what to expect from each track. Frontman Dave Longstreth and company take you on an aural roller coaster ride on the record, never leaving you wanting. Elements of folk, “indie,” glam, electronica, and pop are all married together on track after track in a beautiful dissonance. Animated drum loops propel playful rhythms that enhance a gentle bed of largely acoustic guitars. While never brash in tone, a casual listen may prove challenging because album tracks such as “Offspring Are Blank” and “About To Die” take unpredictable turns through varied genre conventions. The songs never feel forced or different for the sake of being different, which can happen in the hands of lesser composers. Instead, what you will get for your dollar is an extremely well arranged record that required your full attention and rewards with each listen.
