Will The Dirty Projectors Rise Above?

The Vulture’s Amos Barshad wonders if, with the release of their marvelous new record, Bitte Orca, The Dirty Projectors will make “the leap” to increased cultural prominence a la TV on the Radio and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I don’t have a strong intuition on this one — the band’s sound is still pretty far out — but I sure hope so: If there’s a better record that’s been released this year, I haven’t heard it.

The studio version of the song, which really deserves a video, is even slicker.
