If I was to buy 1 album...?
do you not like them then?
...it's strictly two E.P's stuck together, but it gives the most varied and highest quality showcase of his songwriting in my mind.
That and 'Rise Above', as long as you're familiar with 'Damaged'.
It is rather odd how they are getting press in the NME now. I never thought the day would come.
I really hope NME people don't latch on to them :(
but ive heard a part of it, and to me it seems that you can have absolutely no knowledge of damaged and enjoy it. dirty projectors' music and interpretation is completely irrelevant to any of the message of damaged, theyre just words for him to sing in his admittedly beautiful voice.
But it's still a massive reference point to another record. A reinterpretation; experiment, whatever. Knowledge of that original source and discovering the contrast between it and Dave Longstreth's hazy memory of it is 50% of the enjoyment as far as i'm concerned.
beirut a year ago...i've not been impressed with their recorded output either. i dont get it...
by a band that aren't mean.
they played a year ago where i worked and were the rudest band ever.
people tried to talk to them and they would walk off. thats not nice!
