Dirty Pro­jec­tors – Dirty Pro­jec­tors

Yorkshire Post - Culture & The Guide - - REVIEWS - DAR­RYL WEB­BER

Dirty Pro­jec­tors are a col­lec­tive cen­tred around Brook­lyn vo­cal­ist and mul­ti­in­stru­men­tal­ist, David Longstreth and this is their eighth al­bum. There’s def­i­nitely some­thing of the NYC melt­ing pot about Longstreth’s songs. They mix up gen­res, not just from song to song, but within songs them­selves. Soul, R’n’B, funk, gospel, jazz and hip hop all jos­tle for po­si­tion in the blender, but there’s an over­all feel to the Dirty Pro­jec­tors sound that transcends all that. Death Spi­ral com­bines throb­bing beats with in­tri­cate key­boards and del­i­cate strings as it charts a re­la­tion­ship break­down. Some­times it feels like there’s too much go­ing on, but there are some strong songs un­der­neath all the stu­dio trick­ery and they do shine through.
