The Billboard
Dirty Projectors are an experimental pop group led by singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Dave Longstreth which formed in 2002 in Brooklyn, New York, United States. The current lineup of Dirty Projectors is Dave Longstreth (vocals, multiple instruments), Amber Coffman (vocals, guitar), Angel Deradoorian (vocals, keyboard, guitar), Nat Baldwin (bass), Brian McComber (drums) and Haley Dekle (vocals).

Based in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn with connections to the Portland, OR music scene, the group has produced a distinctive sound of electronic experimentation, melded with traditional instruments and harmonically complex vocals. Their recordings range from Prince-style one-man-recording-studio productions (The Glad Fact), to arranged orchestrations (the “Slaves’ Graves” half of Slaves’ Graves & Ballads), to basic voice over nylon-string guitar (the “Ballads” half of the aforementioned) to an amalgamation of all these tactics (the ‘glitch opera’ of The Getty Address and the mixed nature of New Attitude EP). Throughout, Longstreth’s aggressively melodic vocals provide a consistent identity for otherwise widely divergent approaches to pop music. Longstreth claims influences ranging from Don Henley to Mariah Carey. The former’s influence is most easily seen in The Getty Address album, which is a conceptual opera written from the point of view of Henley as a Spanish Conquistador, though the latter’s vocal gymnastics clearly provide a clue to Longstreth’s approach.
