Dirty Projectors Featured on NPR’s Song of the Day

The title track from Rise Above was featured today on NPR’s Song of the Day, where you can also stream the song. NPR’s Michael Katzif said, “On the title track, as with much of the record, Longstreth neatly entangles crisp guitar playing, a chorus of female voices and a sturdy back beat, and takes the songs far away from punk and into less easily labeled territory. The song mixes the soaring vocal heroics of soul, the bite of ’60s rock and subtle allusions to the dance grooves of Afrobeat, as Longstreth’s voice channels Marvin Gaye and Bob Marley via Antony & The Johnsons.”
