Fireworks that'll last all Summer long

Red Hot Summer Tour Begins
Someone You Really Need to Know







NEW ALBUM JULY 10 - The songs of Swing Lo Magellan are culled from a sprawling twelve months of constant writing and recording in a weird house in Delaware County, New York (four hours northwest of the city). Projectors mastermind David Longstreth, who produced and mixed, wrote seventy new songs and beats. The band -- Amber Coffman (vocals & guitar), Nat Baldwin (Bass), Brian McOmber (Drums) & Haley Dekle (vocals) - - joined him periodically, rehearsing the new music more or less constantly in the house's A-frame attic (vocalist Angel Deradoorian is on hiatus). The twelve songs of Swing Lo Magellan were winnowed down from about forty finished demos. The finished recordings bear the impress of this informal working style: the album is a collection of moments: accidental, fortuitous, spontaneous. The performances feel warm and imperfect. Unguarded intimacy is somewhat of a new look for this band, and it turns out it's a very good look.
