Don’t think I could be any more excited about this collaboration.
Dirty Projectors is the best band of the “aughts.”
Bjork is a constant source of inspiration and light. (Oh, and she wrote “Big Time Sensuality,” one of the best songs of all time.)
Proceeds from “Mount Wittenberg Orca” go to National Geographic.**
Dave Longstreth has said the piece “is about a day three weeks ago that Amber Coffman was in Northern California watching whales from a mountain called Mount Wittenberg. The six songs are imagining the moment Amber saw this whale, and the whale saw her.” He also claims it’s “definitely like Bitte Orca’s younger, hotter sister.” Needles to say, this should be one of the most intriguing releases of 2010.
Mount Wittenberg Orca is a 20-minute, seven-track piece was written by DP leader Dave Longstreth. It will be self-released digitally on June 30.
**This project is also not funded by Converse/Red Bull/ Southern Comfort/ etc. This point, though close to completely untenable, is important to me.
