Boombox Alert: Dirty Projectors’ Bitte Orca Will Be Available On Limited-Edition Tape


As if you needed more reasons to love the Dirty Projectors. With yesterday’s mail came the official Domino press copy of Bitte Orca, an extraordinary gossamer of a record that snooty music jerks and press flacks will not be able to STFU come week after next, as they pre-emptively christen it #2 of 2009 after Merriweather Post Pavilion. Digital version has been floating around for nearly two months, but the Projectors team found a way to make the CD-arrival process exciting–it also came with Bitte Orca on tape. When you see me in Bed-Stuy driving a first-gen Beetle and blasting “Temecula Sunrise,” you better wave.
