Dirty Projectors exploded into the big leagues in ’09 on the strength of their magical fifth full-length album, Bitte Orca. TV appearances, praise from tastemakers like Questlove and a high-profile team-up with Björk ensued. After a hibernation period, Dave Longstreth’s protean art-pop vehicle is back with a new LP, Swing Lo Magellan, and a sure-to-be-exquisite pair of gigs to match. Opening are the dreamy Baltimore art-pop outfit Wye Oak and buzzy Canadian electro duo Purity Ring.
