After wallowing in the lovelorn R&B of Dirty Projectors' self-titled 2017 album, Dave Longstreth returns to peppy Baroque pop on his recent record Lamp Lit Prose. While he's still missing the taut vocal harmonies that defined the band's most memorable songs, guest spots from singers like Syd (of the Internet) and Empress Of are a welcome adition to Longstreth's sonic palette—as are his offhanded lyrical references to Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas and the Palace Versailles. Here, Dirty Projectors settle in for a three-night residency at Chicago's newest music venue, Sleeping Village.
