Odd-rock wizards The Dirty Projectors
are releasing a limited edition 7", entitled Ascending Melody
, populated with two previously unreleased tracks from the Bitte Orca
sessions. The physical release
is available today, 1/11. Fans also have the option of a totally free digital download, for the price of an email. Details after the jump.
DP had a hell of a year. Bitte Orca
cracked every top ten list, generally floating somewhere around the number two slot (they were fifth in our album poll, but we put them at number three
on the editorial top ten songs). Praise from P4K, The New Yorker
and even The NY Times
escalated the standing of the band to new heights. After a few late night appearances, DP became one of the biggest indie releases of the year (much to the pleasure of Domino).
