Dirty Projectors' ’09 breakthrough, Bitte Orca, garnered such serious acclaim—from TONY and tons of other outlets—that it seemed to set up the local art-pop faves for an anticlimax to come. But 2012's Swing Lo Magellan was another stunner, a set of groovy, soulful songs, beautifully showcased on Dave Longstreth & Co.'s recent late-night-TV appearances. With this swanky gig, the Projectors prove beyond any doubt that they've graduated out of the indie-rock niche and into the smart-pop big leagues. Postclassical band yMusic lends some high-art luster.
