Dirty Projectors – “You Against The Larger World”

By Tom Breihan / April 20, 2012

Dirty Projectors’ feverishly anticipated new album Swing Lo Magellan is imminent, and we’ve already slavered over the first single “Gun Has No Trigger.” The album is 12 songs long, but the band recorded more than 40 demos. One of the tracks that didn’t make the cut was “You Against The Larger World,” which only exists in the form of a demo, with frontman Dave Longstreth playing it solo-acoustic. It still sounds pretty great, and it’s part of a Record Store Day flexi-disc from the Smuggler’s Way zine. Listen to it below.
