Dirty Projectors “Cannibal Resource”

Never really gotten into their old stuff, but “Cannibal Resource” is one of several songs from this new LP, Bitte Orca, that has been making the rounds on indie rock radio, along with “Stillness is the Move” and “No Intention,” and they are all great. The record itself is pretty great on the whole, and definitely joins Grizzly Bear and Animal Collective as strong contenders for album of the year.
