My September Soundtrack

dirty

Dirty Projectors

I was introduced to this band by the excellent David Shrigley who I discovered at the Tate in London so many years ago.  He released his brilliant Worried Noodles in 2007 which was a book of strange doodles and 2 compilation CDs of songs he digs.  This band features on the second CD.  It was worth the 20 or so euro for the doodle book alone.  Looking at the track listing again, it strange to see some bands and artists who were pretty unknown when it was released or bands I just never knew when I bought this.  I also remember winning tickets to a Dirty Projectors Whelans gig ages ago from City Discs [Dublin] and ended up not going to it for some reason – what a fool I was.  I remember a report suggesting about 10 people attended it…. oops.
