Hearing Bjork's vocals intertwined with that of Dirty Projectors makes me wonder why this didn't happen sooner. The fragile instrumentation on this mini-album doesn't live up to the high-end production on Bitte Orca, but it doesn't need to. The vocals are absolutely stunning-even Wittenberg Orca is an EP by American indie rock band Dirty Projectors and Icelandic singer and songwriter Björk, released on June 30, 2010 in digital-only format and on CD and vinyl by Domino Records on 24 October, 2011. News of the album was announced on Björk's official website on 26 June 2010, four days before its release. The vocals are dominant on all the tracks, which form an experimental and pop continuum.

Dirty Projectors and Björk self-release a folksy, dressed-down, and appealing song cycle for charity that was written and assembled quickly. But their reputation for being anal-retentive and self-contained is one of the reasons Mount Wittenberg Orca- a recording of a song cycle performed last May for Housing Works, a charity and chain of upmarket thrift stores in New York- is so refreshing. Dave Longstreth, the brain and foreman of Dirty Projectors, wrote the songs in less than a month, and the group rehearsed together for only a week. At a listening party the band held for the EP in late June, he explained that the songs were mostly recorded live and in the same room. Dirty ProjectorsBjork - Mount Wittenberg Orca review: Colorful, raw, and filled with plenty of unique harmonies: Mount Wittenberg Orca is simply gorgeous. And why would that be Indie fans love Bjork, and 2009 was the height of Dirty Projectors popularity. So shouldnt a 2010 EP with both of them be eaten up like candy Is it because Bjorks previous 2007 album Volta was poorly received by most of her fans Whatever the reason, Mount Wittenberg Orca lives up to most of the hype of 2009 predecessor Bitte Orca, but with a rawer, more nature-oriented atmosphere. Most of the guitar on the album is acoustic, and the atmospheric double bass occasionally shows up to hum. Mount Wittenberg Orca by Dirty Projectors Björk, released 31 October 2011 1. Ocean 2. On and Ever Onward 3. When the World Comes to an End 4. Beautiful Mother 5. Sharing Orb 6. No Embrace 7. All We Are Mount Wittenberg Orca is named so because it is about whales, it was inspired by events on Mt. Wittenberg in California, and because it elaborates on David Longstreth's obsession with vocal harmony introduced on Dirty Projectors' 2009 album Bitte Orca. This seven-song, twenty-one minute collection is the first original music the band has recorded since Bitte Orca, and it feels more l. Considering those involved, Mount Wittenberg Orca is relatively simple and straightforward. Its easily accessible and immediately enjoyable, something that cant always be said about these two artists who like to challenge their listeners. Full Review. Definitely took me a while to digest this as a collaboration project, but like most of Bjork's and Dirty Projector's other works, it's very ambitious and inventive, even though the subject matter is rather delicate and simple. Definitely worth a listen for Bjork fans. musicmagpie55. Nothing makes me happier than imagining Bjork and David Longstreth kicking it in a studio and writing songs about whales. Originally available solely as a charitable download last year, Dirty Projectors' collaboration with Björk finally receives a physical release, a welcome compensation for those who, like me, found her own Biophilia a touch Dirty Projectors and Björk wanted Mount Wittenberg Orca to have a spontaneous feeling, so the EP was recorded in a matter of days, creating a fascinating tension between the intricate pieces and unstudied performances. Vocals are the main focus here, and the Projectors' female singers teeter between sweet coos and tart braying on the opening track Ocean and On and Ever Onward, which features Björk singing lead and showcases the avant-pop leanings of both acts to their finest Sharing Orb, meanwhile, contrasts her free-form singing with structured backing vocals worthy of an oper. Mount Wittenberg Orca is the 7 song suite composed by David Longstreth for his band, Dirty Projectors, and Bjork. The suite was originally performed as one off benefit concert in 2009, but the work was so strong they got back together a year later to make this stunning recording. Go Unlimited. Though Dirty Projectors often make a lot of use of syncopated vocals and rhythms, this album sacrifices pleasurable melodies in favor of extreme quirkiness. These are some beautiful and intriguing voices, but the album lacks depth for not developing the songs and letting them flourish into something more meaningful
