Dirty Projectors - "Offspring Are Blank" & "The Socialites" (Live On KEXP)

Dirty Projectors stopped in KEXP’s studio for a live session yesterday, a set that featured two previously unheard tracks from the forthcoming Swing Lo Magellan. Head to Fake Walls to hear rips of the tracks. “Offspring Are Blank” is a building rock arrangement featuring signature Dirty Pros harmonies and “The Socialites” is an understated, Coffman-led shuffle. Like with their Fallon performance, Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner joins the Projectors. You can hear the whole performance by heading to KEXP’s archive page, selecting June 21 and the 9:00 AM Variety Mix show. The performance happens at about 9:40.

  1. The more I hear from this album the more I think I’d be better off just waiting until it comes out so I can listen to it all at once.

  2. I feel like I’m really going to enjoy this album. The thing I like the most, although it wasn’t apparent in Gun Has No Trigger, is how much the drums and bass have improved from the last album which I still feel is the weakest part of Bitte Orca, but maybe that was the point.

  3. “Offspring Are Blank” is a killer of a track!

  4. “Offspring Are Blank” is definitely a song some model should wrap herself around a pole to!

    I guess I just had a catharsis: Come up with something witty first and only then post in a forum…

  5. Well if we take this into account, I’m pretty sure the “Blank” means “shit”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FAlZyajmcIM
