CD Review: Dirty Projectors 

Swing Lo Magellan (Domino)

The revolving-door Brooklyn band's follow-up to 2010's breakthrough Ascending Melody sharpens the focus, spearheading their downtown indie rock into more soulful territory. But ringleader David Longstreth still can't walk a straight line: Songs like "About to Die" and "Gun Has No Trigger" open the door to hazy vocals, rolling percussive fills, and off-course handclaps that can clear a room as easily as they can bring it together. — Gallucci
