Lamp Lit Prose
this is a delightfully mad record formed around blindingly bright melodies, slick soulful vocals and glitchy, chopped up polyrhythms that equate to the hysteria of a glorious sugar rush.
‘Lamp Lit Prose' has aptly been described as “the yang to the yin” of Dirty Projectors. Where that self-titled effort found Longstreth expressing his loneliness through glitchy dance songs, this new record brings back bright guitars and intricate vocal harmonies. Assisting Longstreth in this journey forward is a slew of featured guests, including HAIM, Empress Of, The Internet’s Syd, Amber Mark, and Dear Nora. Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold and former Vampire Weekend member Rostam join in on a song called “You’re the One”. Also on the record is the band’s longtime rhythm section, Nat Baldwin and Mike Johnson. “new yorker’s eighth lets the light and beauty in” 4/5 – mojo.
