BRAND NEW: Dirty Projectors – "Ascending Melody" 7"

Eccentric pop melodies are rolled together on the two songs from this free single, "Ascending Melody" and "Emblem Of The World". Dragged around the songs are loose-played guitars, and the twangy, sunny vibe, leaving you unsure entirely what to expect from Dirty Projectors.

The female vocal lines rise and begin "Ascending Melody" before the male counterpart joins in, balancing out the song and interweaving vocal duties in the chorus. There’s an overwhelming exuberance that seems to transcend the music completely. It sounds like they’re having fun at the same time too.

"Emblem Of The World" isn’t quite as interesting or appealing, but provides a nice bit of filler for the single. It’s in the same style as "Ascending Melody", as you would expect, but isn’t quite as up-beat.

Score: 6/10
