Dirty Projectors Announce Tour, Limited Edition Cassette

brandon | May 6, 2009 - 3:27 pm

From Dark Was The Night Live and dueting with David Byrne to Friday’s show with Björk, this is a big week for Dirty Projectors. It’s just gotten more sizable with the announcement that there’ll be a limited-edition cassette version of their excellent fifth album Bitte Orca (old people are excited, young people are wondering what the fuck a cassette is). That, and the band’s supplementing their supporting tour with TV On The Radio (maybe it should be the other way around) with a 12-city headlining tour that launches June 17th in Philadelphia at the First Unitarian Church. Details, including the cassette cover art.

Or see this for sequence:

Side A
01 “Cannibal Resource”
02 “Temecula Sunrise”
03 “The Bride”
04 “Stillness Is The Move”
05 “Two Doves”

Side B
01 “Useful Chamber”
02 “No Intention”
03 “Remade Horizon”
04 “Fluorescent Half Dome”

It’s only available via Domino’s website. If you take the plunge, Dennis Callaci, you won’t be purely analog: Said cassette and, yes, the LP, include codes for MP3 downloads (320kbps). Bitte Orca is out 6/9 via Domino. Start your cassette and etc. pre-ordering now. You can also check your calendar. The shows without TV On The Radio are part of the headlining tour:
