Earlier this year Dirty Projectors visited our friends at Daytrotter and performed songs that were not on their new album, Rise Above. They passed back through Rock Island, IL again this fall and stopped by the Daytrotter studios, this time recording a few selections from Rise Above. These three songs are sparser than the originals, allowing the vocal harmonies to really shine through. Stop by Daytrotter and give it a spin!
The fine folks at Daytrotter are at it again. Dirty Projectors stopped by the Daytrotter studios while out on tour with Grizzly Bear and recorded four songs for Daytrotter. This session features a scorching rendition of the live favorite and unreleased song “New New Attitude”.

The legend of Dirty Projectors has been closely tied to their jaw-dropping live performances, so when the band announces a six week headlining North American tour, it is time to pay close attention. Their new album, Rise Above, has finally captured the band’s live energy and momentum, but there is still something undeniable about witnessing Dirty Projectors in the flesh.
For an incredibly unique take on the Dirty Projectors live show, check out their recent “take away show” videos recorded by the La Blogotheque. It’s a truly special, one-of-a-kind performance.
Dirty Projectors are headed to Europe for the first time this summer. They will be supporting Beirut in London, Paris and Berlin, as well as appearing at several European festivals. In addition to these shows, Dirty Projectors will also headline a handful of dates during their travels. All of the Dirty Projectors tour dates can be found here.
