Dirty Projectors - Free 7"! Live Vidz!
I dunno where you've been if you haven't heard about this yet, but just in case -- Dirty Projectors is giving away a free download of their new 7", featuring two leftovers from the sessions that birthed Bitte Orca: "Ascending Melody" and "Emblem of the World". Both of them are totes gnarly. The eponymous song has been stuck in my head for days. Get it while you still can. Presumably, this is a "limited time offer".
Unfortunately, the mindblowing new live track "Wittenberg III" (or "When the World Comes to an End", depending on where you're looking) is not included. Bummer. Here's a video, for the uninitiated:
And, just for kicks, two different live versions of Ascending Melody: The first, from last summer, is similar to the recorded version; the second is from April 2008, and they play in a different key, and the vocals are totally different, and also it's longer. Variations! As a special bonus, you get a better view of short-haired Angel Deradoorian wearing short-shorts. Isn't she just lovely?
