Bitte Orca is one of the more purely enjoyable indie-rock records in an awfully long time; remarkable by any means, but even moreso considering the source.

Dirty Projectors release their breakthrough record. This album shows how these guys are very talented in instrumentation and make some fun and experimental rock songs. It's quite impressive.

Favourite tracks: Cannibal Resource, Temecula Sunrise, Stillness is the Move, Two Doves, Useful Chamber, No Intention

A pretty solid adaptation of 2000s experimental rock, but it borrows too heavily from other bands of the time, namely Animal Collective. Yet, it's still an enjoyable experience overall.

The instruments Bitte Orca are inexorably precise and tightly orchestrated, demonstrating sheer technicality. However, the vocals are what make the album.

The mix between the two voices, and the diversity is impeccable.
