Seigar, the photographer, is back.
The American indie rock band from New York released an album this year that has garnered different reactions from people and critics. Lamp Lit Prose has been received with a 7.4 by Pitchfork, but some music pages haven’t been that generous. It has always been a group spoiled by the music critics, but this time the consensus doesn’t seem to be so clear. It’s not easy listening, but it is sincere in a way people might not expect from Dirty Projectors at this point.
David Longstreth is the lead singer of the band, and he may be in love, judging from all the lyrics being more cheerful than in previous albums. Songs seem to sparkle, not in an undemanding way; in fact, their music asks for some effort from the listeners. That being said, if you like it, you will love it. This summer, I did some hiking in Somerset (England, UK) with this album on my iPhone and believe me, it was a great companion to the walks. It was beautiful to see the greenery, the sand of the long beaches, and walk up the hills through forests with these tunes. I felt the days were warmer and sunnier with this album.
Today, I’m bringing you “I Feel Energy” just to show what you can find behind this record. The song is a mixture of Björk’s musical style and Michael Jackson’s vocals. Doesn’t it sound appealing enough for you? Well, it’s like her Homogenic and his Off the wall to be more specific. Click in the link bellow, enjoy the passion and love, and you will be able to go back to the summer memories, too. This will be one of my top ten songs of 2018.
