The God Warrior for the the week of June 15th is David Longstreth of Dirty Projectors.
We love Dirty Projectors‘ founder David Longstreth for many reasons. Not only does he possess one of the most refreshingly impressive and soulful voices that we’ve heard in a long time, but he has managed to go from solo act to quartet while evolving his sound and keeping listeners right under his thumb. Basically, what we are trying to say is we here at TT&SC would do just about anything to take the places of his two female band-mates. The Projectors kicked so much ass during their first Daytrotter session in 2007 that they were asked for an encore. Below are MP3s of this triumphant return.
“Dirty Dave” and his crew are set to release not one, but two (!) albums in 2009, and are going to be playing the Pitchfork Music Festival in July.
