Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Dirty Projectors - Rise Above Rise Above
Pop Used - LP DOC001 Dead Oceans
2007 Original With Custom Insert. Vinyl Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “Supposedly David Longstreth Was On Tour With The Dirty Projectors, The Indie Rock Band He's Been Fronting Since 2002, When He Found Himself Thinking A Great Deal About Black Flag's Epochal 1981 Debut Album, Damaged. Given The Many Miles Black Flag Racked Up Criss-Crossing America During Their Bloody Heyday, That Shouldn't Be At All Surprising, But Rather Than Picking Up A New Copy Of The Album And Cranking It Up In Celebration Of His Fellow Road Warriors, Longstreth Channeled His Thoughts In A Different Direction -- After Coming Home From The Tour, He Took The Dirty Projectors Into A Studio And Covered 11 Of Damaged's 15 Tracks, All Without Giving Himself Or His Musicians A Refresher Course On What They Sounded Like. The Result, Rise Above, Reimagines Black Flag's Ragged Hymns Of Rage And Angst Into Smart But Fractured Bursts Of Wiry Guitar (Imagine King Sunny Ade After Ten Cups Of Coffee) Accompanied By Breathy, Ethereal Vocals, Occasional Interjections Of Strings And Woodwinds, And A Precise But Flexible Rhythm Section. While These Interpretations Stray A Considerable Distance From Black Flag's Originals, What's Most Surprising Is How Much Of The Original Frameworks Of These Songs Remain -- The Melodies, Such As They Are, Can Generally Still Be Recognized, And If The Pissed-Off Howl Of Henry Rollins Is The Polar Opposite Of Longstreth's Vocal Style, The Contrary Message Of The Songs Somehow Shines Through.” – Mark Deming, AMG... more details
 
Dirty Projectors - Swing Lo Magellan Swing Lo Magellan
Pop New - LP DNO312 Domino
Sealed, Out Of Print 2012 Original With Embossed Fold-Out Lyric Tablet. "Swing Lo Magellan is the David Longstreth-led Dirty Projectors' sixth studio album. Proclaiming that this is "an album of songs, an album of songwriting," and despite the absence of long-term collaborator Angel Deradoorian, Longstreth manages to produce his most tender yet anthemic record to date. Spending nearly 12 months recording and writing in an isolated house in the rural solitude of Delaware County, New York, Longstreth forged intimacy and spontaneity, and each track bursts with ideas and warmth, but that's not to suggest that the fidgetiness and crashing rhythms of their previous material are not there."
