The Dirty Projectors Ride the World Music Train

Ah, fortunes continues to smile upon those playing world music for the indie set.

Hot off the heels of a gorgeous contribution on Stereogum’s tribute to Bjork’s Post, Brooklyn-based Dirty Projectors have stayed super-busy as of late.

Wait! Still don’t know who we’re talking about? Alongside MGMT, Yeasayer, and Vampire Weekend, they’re one of the many bands we focused on earlier this year making waves from across the water. (Check out the clip below.)


And things are looking up for the Dirty P’s — apparently, the band has just signed to Domino Records and is currently working on not just one, but two albums. One’s for Domino, and the other’s their final release for their Dead Oceans label. The latter, according to their PR peeps, will be “”an album expanding upon and inspired by the arrangements of Rise Above,” their critically acclaimed 2007 album. But don’t get too worked up yet: it won’t drop until fall of 2009.
