Allow us to recommend a band called Dirty Projectors. These excerpts (from the NY-Times and Pitchfork) should easily make our case that this should be your new favorite band before you hear a single note.
"The artwork of “Bitte Orca” features Mr. Longstreth gazing into the eyes of Friedrich Nietzsche." (NY-Times)
"Previous Dirty Projectors albums have been heavy on concept; “The Getty Address,” from 2005, is a “glitch opera” loosely about cultural imperialism, told through Don Henley and the Aztec people." (NY-Times)
"...many of the songs grew out of playful experiments. For the lyrics to “Stillness Is the Move” Mr. Longstreth had Ms. Coffman watch the Wim Wenders film “Wings of Desire” and write down lines of dialogue that intrigued her; other lyrics were drawn from an Excel spreadsheet of hundreds of pop clichés." (NY-Times)
"The last Dirty Projectors full-length, 2007's Rise Above, reimagined a Black Flag hardcore classic as an art-jazz cave painting." (Pitchfork)
The new album, Bitte Orca, drops tomorrow. The album cover is pictured below. See you at Love Garden!
In a shocking upset during last night's Game of the Week, the relatively unknown team called Screamers defeated Free State Brewing 21-1. There's only one possible explanation for this: the Free State Brewing team was completely and irrecoverably drunk by the 9:00 game time.
LC-supporter and fashion maven Beth recently turned us onto a fascinating website called "Look at this fucking hipster" (www.latfh.com), which offers pictures of hipsters in their natural habitats accompanied by amusing captions (basically, the same kind of shit we've been doing here for years without an audience). Let's play a round of latfh today using photos from last night's Replay show. Yes, it's a new feature that shows why it's probably better if the LC remains relatively private. If you see yourself or your friends here, we don't mean any particular harm.
An attractive goth chick and a young woman dressed like your grandmother are either bonding over their coolness or preparing to make out.
Life imitates art as this hipster strikes a pose in front of the Replay's new mural. Do you think he works at Ace Hardware, or is he just a fan?
This hipster chick has some sweet dragon tattoos on her back and some funky glasses and we'd totally bang her.
