Press for the latest Dirty Projectors album Bitte Orca:

"Bitte Orca is a careening, three-way balancing act between the finger-picked experimentation of the Books, the math rock of Battles, and Of Montreal's gallivanting pop. Bitte Orca is close to a masterpiece." Five Stars, Slant Magazine

"Their dynamic take on pop lilts and reels like a troupe of stilt walkers pretending to be off balance until suddenly they gel into perfect choreography and deliver an unforgettable performance of eccentric rhythm." Five Stars, The Australian

"Over nine indispensable tracks, Bitte Orca forges a more perfect union between eccentricity and accessibility. Much ink will likely be spilled on 2009 being the year that Brooklyn's experimental class finally went *pop*, and 'with apologies to Animal Collective and Grizzly Bear' it'd be hard to find a better thesis statement." Five Stars, The Onion AV Club

"Bitte Orca, the band's best, and certainly most likable, album by a mile... a triumphant art-pop record destined to please longtime fans and win him a whole slew of new ones... one of the more purely enjoyable indie-rock records in an awfully long time." 9.2, Pitchfork

"While still retaining that exacting focus that has made Dirty Projectors the unplaceable enterprise that it is, Bitte Orca is merely the sound of an extremely talented group of musicians tweaking and, to an extent, reinventing their approach, stepping a little further away from left field." Four and a half stars, Tiny Mix Tapes

"'Stillness' might provide the entrance point, but Bitte Orca is the kind of album that is best taken from start to finish, where the songs and musical themes are allowed to grow, endear and impress." 8.5, Prefix Mag
