New Music From Dirty Projectors And Björk...Together!
|Cover art for Mount Wittenberg Orca|
Like Björk's a cappella outing on 2004's "Medúlla," these songs concentrate more on the human voice than they do on instrumentation. In fact, guitars and drums are almost entirely absent from the recording. The music was rehearsed in Brooklyn at the Rare Book Room and recorded as live as possible soon thereafter, with overdubbing of only certain lead vocals and solos.
"Mount Wittenberg Orca" can be yours for a charitable donation (there are four donation levels: $7, $25, $50 and $100). All proceeds (that means 100 percent, folks) of your donation goes directly to the National Geographic Society's Ocean Initiative which (duh) strives to protect the world's oceans and its inhabitants. Listen to a track from the album, "All We Are," below, or get your copy here.
