i live in a small town in westchester, new york. you have not heard the word "bittie" and thought of a young lady in ugg boots and abercrombie, with a pink razr, wearing leggings as pants, unless you come from here too.
the dirty projectors are a band from brooklyn and they have a new album coming out soon called "bitte orca." it looks like this:
the lead single off it is
STILLNESS IS THE MOVE --- DIRTY PROJECTORS.
i've been listening to an NPR sxsw recording of it all weekend, and i just finally got the recorded version! IT. IS. AWESOME. amber coffman sounds like an mtv-style pop diva wailing arpeggios over talking heads-ish guitar. listen to it RIGHT NOW.
i think that "bitte orca" is a good album title. local slang is unfortunate. whenever i think about it i think "bittie orca."
