The Brooklyn-based experimental indie-rock outfit Dirty Projectors, headed by virtuoso vocalist/guitarist Dave Longstreth, is back with its highly anticipated follow-up to 2009’s Bitte Orca.

Dirty Projectors’ last effort was ranked the No. 2 album of ’09 by both Pitchfork and TIME, and their upcoming album is apparently named after GPS systems, and will be without member Angel Deradoorian, who is reportedly “on hiatus” from the band. The first single from their upcoming LP, Swing Lo Magellan, “Gun Has No Trigger,” is a brilliant, Beatles-esque tune with an absolutely killer bass line.
