VIDEO: Dirty Projectors – “Swing Lo Magellan”
I was late to the Dirty Projectors train. Sure, I’d heard Bitte Orca like most anyone browsing music blogs at the time, but it didn’t grab me immediately the way Swing Lo Magellan did. I believe this was the first song I heard off the album (although it was possibly “Dance For You”). Either way, I liked it enough to check out their live show a couple weeks later where I was blown away and finally “got” Dirty Projectors. I’ve since gone back and developed an appreciation for their earlier albums, but this one and this song in particular, will always hold a special place in my heart.
