During a recent session for the Australian radio station Triple J, Dirty Projectors took it upon themselves to cover Usher’s “Climax,” the one recent radio hit that shows the sort of melodic sophistication that the group loves. Backed entirely by by some sort of drum-machine sequencer doohickey, the band’s version of the song is actually a bit thin. But dude, Amber Coffman’s voice. Watch it below.
I liked how the hosts pointed out that Coffman is only, like, one degree of separation removed from “Climax.”
