I can usually be objective and I understand that just because I don't like a thing that someone somewhere might love it. Perhaps it's just not for me. This album, however, made me angry. It's so bad. So so bad. I can't even figure out what they're trying to do here. There's no cohesion, no atmosphere, no point. Awful stuff.

OK, this was probably the strangest album yet. I have no idea how to start describing it. But I definitely really liked it a lot - without being able to describe why either. I have already saved the album to listen to it again another time. But first I'll just go straight ahead and listen to something else by Dirty Projectors. Update: I then spent the rest of the day listening to radio playlists based on Dirty Projectors and loved it all the way. Even though I still don't really know what kind of music this is.

I got slightly into Dirty Projectors around the time this was released. I don't listen to whole lot of indie rock anymore, and didn't even have a FLAC copy of this - so I guess it has been years since I revisited it. Damn, it's still good. I love the abstract songwriting and idiosyncratic delivery. I love the way layered voices are used, and I love how the music is crisp and precise, but carries a big sense of possibility, like they might go off in another direction any moment. Can't think of anything I would change about this, so 5/5.

I wish I’d discovered this album outside of this project, as one day is not enough to really rate and digest it. However, I think this is still a pretty clear 5 here; I love this creative and experimental indie.

A great deal of this record is a guy singing in falsetto while two female voices do a weird "vocal hocketing" thing that I learned about today. Dirty Projectors is one of those art pop bands that think switching obscure time signatures in the middle of a song makes them worthy. Technical acumen is nice, but they occassionally forget to make the music listenable at the same time. Best track: Two Doves

I don't really get it. The album manages to be good, interesting, bad, and bland. Unfortunately, none of good parts are very interesting and all of the interesting parts are bad. The very best of the album sounds like it belongs on a better album.

Longstreth's voice sounds a bit strained on the first few cuts, but the compositions are intricate and the backing harmonies are delightful in stereo. Temecula Sunrise underlines the suburban angst with interjected "yeah"s. There's a prog-folk feel to first three songs, and they start in roughly the same way: minimal instrumentation and male vocals opening into movements and soundscapes. Stillness Is The Move is the proof that this is not the formula. It establishes that fact with its vamp. The sequencing continues to flow thanks to the string section linkage, until No Intention breaks the flow with a hint of a different kind of project altogether. The album ends with Longstreth in a halfway point between his early, more forced vocals and the more comfortable timbre of the couple preceding tracks. This time, he enters after an organ, and the song and album come to a close as the ideas on it come to fruition. I didn't expect something this accessible when I saw Trout Mask Replica comparisons, but this project earns it when its title is realized in lyrics.

Wonderfully quirky and inventive. I think The Dirty Projectors and Grizzly Bear were two of the best indie acts of the early 2000s. Like any offbeat and complex works it’ll take a few lessons to grow on me but then it’s gonna stick for a long time, unlike the formulaic pop on mainstream radio

Experimental music can be very very good or can miss the mark completely. This is the former. Reminiscent in places of a Zaireeka-era Flaming Lips and a more polished Deerhoof, which is very much my jam. I'd never heard of Dirty Projectors before, but enjoyed this enough to want to check out more of their back catalogue. If it is as good as this, I will be in for a treat, but suspect 'hit and miss' may go with the genre... 4/5.

"I think you're more than a terrified witness Behind the arbitrary line" (Cannibal resource) "On top of every mountain There was a great longing For another even higher mountain In each city longing for a bigger city" (Stillness is the move) Pues bastante bien, me gustan mucho las letras y el arte es muy bonito.

Truly a first listen for me, probably my first album on the list that I really didn't have much context on. Like, heard of the band before, had some sort of indie rock context, but that's it. And, I'm liking it - a good surprise. Not sure how much I'll want to stick with it over time, but I could see it growing on me (the way Of Montreal's "Hissing Fauna.." did, or could see it getting old. But, for now, I like the layered vocals, the mix of soft and hard, the general feel of orchestration to the whole thing.

Chaotic eclectic sporadic fun. Build ups followed by sudden drops. Smooth guitar work interrupted perfectly by the crash of a cymbal then followed by intentional offbeat drum solos and it all works. Wonderfully unintelligible cannons and echos and dynamic duets between two strong vocalists. Bold new sound seems right here and I will definitely seek them out for more like this. Very unique sound. Cannibal resource, Temecula sunrise, remade horizons, stillness is the move

I've heard of the Dirty Projectors, but I wasn't sure if I've heard any of their music. I've probably heard at least one of their Tiny Desk Concerts. I wasn't sure if "Stillness Is the Move" was a track I've heard before, or if some of the sounds used on the record just remind me of other music. Most of the album felt that way - new music to me but with hints of sounds I've heard before. This isn't bad. The album was put together in a way that I think that it qualifies as a potential re-listen of the whole album.

Lots of melodic and rhythmic unpredictability on this one. Interesting vocals and instrumentation, too. Sometimes it's really interesting and fun and sometimes it's hard work to listen. I loved Cannibal Resource, particularly the backing vocals and the guitar in the instrumental section mid-song. I loved Stillness is the Move, including the title (this is a band that likes a juxtaposition I think). Two Doves sounds like contemporary musical theater (that's a compliment coming from me) and contains the line, "But our bed is like a failure." And Remade Horizon is really great, again with the hooty backing vocals that I find so charming. Most of the rest didn't really work for me. Temecula Sunrise has extremely pedestrian, extremely depressing lyrics. ("Definitely you can come and live with us. I know there's a space for you in the basement, yeah. All you gotta do is help out with the chores and dishes." Poetic in its banality? Actually, kind of yes.) In The Bride, the handclaps after the line, "no one has any good reason to live," were...surprising. I'm giving this one a 4 because the songs I love, I really love, and I am giving them each a star.

Somewhere in the early 2010's, a "facts" page in Facebook once boasted: Japanese scientists have created an MRI machine that can record your dreams and reconstruct them for you to watch while you're awake. And that made me think: considering the illogical and very, very weird stuffs that we see, do, and experience in our sleep-worlds, what could we watch if such MRI machine exists. And more importantly, how will we REACT? But apart from images, our brains actually created SOUNDS too. And of course, the sounds isn't any less weird. A lot of people are probably aware of those non-existent symphonies and synths and voices screaming random words like opera singers. I experience such music when I am about to sleep or about to wake up. And thinking about the fact that my skills in music stuff is zero, I guess that EVERYONE'S brain creates unique music too. My point is, what if instead of recording what we see in our dreams, we record what we HEAR in our dreams? What would we hear? Well, in 2009, some people who call themselves "Dirty Projectors" made a pretty convincing impression of those weird dream-music. They called this album "Bitte Orca". Please killer whale. And hearing those while awake? Weird. Weird. And weird. And perhaps I would have the same reaction if I saw my dreams in that MRI machine. I would see all the eccentric adventures and the illogical stuffs in it. I would find it weird. And this is how I describe "Bitte Orca". Surreal lyrics, unpredictable sounds, and tense yet fun overall atmosphere. It's dream music (no, not the Minecraft YouTuber). It reminds me why I love dreaming. It is where we temporarily throw logic and rules aside, and just have fun and face the chaos and surprises of human imagination.

I enjoyed this but didn't love it. I think if I was seeing them live I really like them but nothing really drew me back to the album.

I respect the experimental-ness, but it doesn't always work for me. The guys voice is not my cup of tea, the female led vocals are better for me, like on Stillness is The Move which is not bad. But it is definitely indie-pop, which in the end I still don't usually like a lot.

This is a quirky collection of songs. I enjoyed the ones with the female vocalists; moving the background vocals up front was very different and original; I didn’t like the constant changes of mood and tempo. This wasn’t in the original 1001 so it must be a recent addition.

The sound is immediately recognizable as more modern than most of the 1001 LPs. I like the way the guitar plays the rhythm without strumming. I appreciate the originality of how they accomplish this. There is something  in their sound related to the transitions within the songs that you might label unusual or creative (depending on whether you like it) . It's not only  the vocals or guitars coming in unexpectedly, although this is done a fair bit,  but also other jumps within the songs.  I can't  describe these maneuvers  well and certainly can’t explain how they get the listener to heed the jumps but the fact they accomplish this with the listener validates their creativity.   While I appreciate the music and the creativity,  I find the "sleight of hand"  in their music cumbersome and, at the end of the day, exhausting.

Начну с небольшого списка альбомов, вышедших в 2009 году и не указанных в списке: Karnivool — Sound Awake Mastodon — Crack the Skye Sonic Youth — The Eternal Muse — The Resistance Kid Cudi — Man on the Moon: The End of Day Converge — Axe to Fall Porcupine Tree — The Incident Puscifer — "C" Is for (Please Insert Sophomoric Genitalia Reference Here) Tyler the Creator — Bastard Bat for Lashes — Two Suns Immortal — All Shall Fall и наконец ебучий Сплин — Сигнал из космоса. Год явно был не выдающимся для музыки, многие из этих альбомов на гениальные не тянут. Но насколько же они лучше, чем Битта Орка. Смешно, что это поняли даже создатели списка и пидорнули из него пластинку в ревизии 2018 года. Но мы, видимо, ознакамливаемся с какой-то более древней версией, поэтому кушаем на здоровье. И не сказать, что альбом прям говно. Ну да, это очевидно новый для меня арт-альбом, который и не должен даваться легко. Уж чего нельзя ему вменить — так это банальности и потакания массам. Музло экспериментальное, самобытное, местами цепляющее, местами сбивающее с толку. Но я так и не смог запустить эту музыку к себе в сердце. Оооочень много ничем не обоснованного авангардизма для авангардизма — все песни кривые, ломанные, практически нет четких мелодий, которые бы придавали композициям целостность. Оно всё как-то существует отдельно друг от друга, песни внезапно стопорятся, меняют темп, начинается какая-то ничем не обусловленная какафония, вокалист воет где-то на уровне умирающего попугая. Ну да, как эксперимент это необычно и уважабельно. Но слушать такое для удовольствия просто невозможно — каждая песня просто душит, просто блять ногой на горло наступает своими полумузыкальными выебонами. Короче хз, ну 5/10 где-то, не могу толком определиться, что с этим делать.

Took a second listen to get this one but it’s actually pretty good. I really like the way they use the guy and girl vocals and some of the weird guitar timing was really interesting.

A bit of odd-ball pop music. Does not stray away from eccentric arrangements and play-styles. But, at it's core, it's still pretty good indie pop music. Some may find the eccentricity annoying, what with the constant off-beat hits and moving from one riff to another. It sounds similar to what ADHD would be like in music form. All that being said, I don't think it would be nearly as memorable if it didn't have those manic moments. One of the simpler songs, Two Doves, is a nice song but doesn't stick with me like the weirder tracks that come before. The drum break in Useful Chamber was particularly fun, leading into the dirty distortion of the next section in the song. I think, at the end of the day, this isn't going to be one of my favorites. It's just too self-indulgent to have any really depth, despite how much I appreciate the choices made to make this album stand out.

Very much a Euro Alt Rock / Indie type thing. Never heard of this group before. Very up and down with some relatively normal folksy type indie tunes, and then getting into some weird yodeling and jazzy/inconsistent melodies. It was ok, seemed very experimental, not really my cup of tea but I didn't hate it. Vocalists remind me of Mother Mother, lots of harmonies with the 3 of them but the music almost gives me a Swedish or Icelandic Fairy-tale kind of vibe. A bit trippy and very offbeat. It's so hard to pin down.

This history was fascinating - including the stories behind the band members and the art work - so I would love to spend more time in the space of this album but in the meantime I'm giving it 3 stars. Mainly becuase I can appreciate the experiemental nature of the album and the fact that the Dirty Projectors tried to do something a little different... It just may be a little TOO different for me.

Well, on first listening, I found I liked the most traditional-sounding song, "Two Doves" and found the rest hard to get into.

Band name and album art were vaguely familiar but the music was all new to me. Funky fresh, inventive blend of electric, acoustic, orchestral, world music etc. Really picked up momentum at track 4 - would've enjoyed more tracks with the female vocalists. Less exciting second time round once the thrill of the new had worn off, but I still appreciate the creativity.

"Bitte Orca" roughly translates to "Thank You, Whale from Free Willy." I wanted to like this but it's hipster bullshit. So much vocalizing/modulating in every fucking song. Weird inflection can be cool but not in every fucking song. I couldn't understand the lyrics so I looked them up... mistake. It sounds like experimental college kid music. I can't imagine listening to this for fun. Music for people who want to appear interesting. Spare me. No Intention raises it from a 1 to a 2 for me.

Нормис не заценил. На грани с неслушабельным. Какофония, которая мало того, что слух режет, да к тому же эстетикой приятной не обладает. Бездушный звук, будто нейросетью состряпанный. Тогда, когда это похоже на адекватную музыку, вроде бы радуешься, но понимаешь, что до хорошей музыки всё же не дотягивает. В качестве неплохого ухо выцепило трек Useful Chamber. Который намекает, что существует вероятность въехать и во всё остальное, хоть она и КРАЙНЕ МАЛА. Посему совсем на дно альбом опускать не стану.

This album felt disjointed and none of the songs really engaged me. Not a fan.

Vocal harmonies were interesting, but otherwise somewhat unremarkable

Definitely missed this whole 2010s indie scene and can't say I regret it. Just can't wrap my head around why anyone would submit to this torture. The music is a grab bang of half finished guitar parts and weird synths, the lyrics are inane and the lead singer has one of the most annoying voices I've heard so far on this list, which is saying something. The only bright spot is when one of the women is singing and that only happens on the one single.

This was pretty good. I wasn’t a fan of some of the vocals but the rest was inoffensive

Have never heard of this group before. As I listened to the album the first time I felt like I might be hearing something very modern what with its odd song structures and airy backing vocals. Is this some post-modern new wave or something? I kept thinking that maybe this is a little too modern for me? I did not feel comfortable listening to this album. There was something persistently alien that prevented me from enjoying this. I started listening a second time but abandoned that attempt after I started feeling annoyed. BITTE ORCA is some new kind of music to me, but I don’t see myself wanting to hear any more of this. There is real talent on display but ultimately I feel unable to relate to this… even though I kind of wish I did.

This era of indie-rock/pop just annoys me.

I think these songs will take more time to enjoy. Kind of a strange album.

Beetje vage pingelmuziek. Ik kan er niet van genieten, maar het irriteert me ook niet zo heel erg.

This is a pretty eclectic sounding album. Sophisticated pop music for the new millenia. hear a little Vampire Weekend at times also some TV on the Radio. And definitely a Beach Boys thread running through their songs. I enjoyed some songs but many son gs did not hold my attention; 2.5 stars

This sounds like the kind of horrible jangly trash that dicks who work in record stores like to recommend just because it's obscure. Some music deserves obscurity.

I'm certain there is more here but I lack the motivation to discover it. The vocalists all sound top notch though. Sounded like a bunch of talented people were in the other room noodling.

A bit of a hot mess, some interesting sounds but I just got bored and wanted it to end. I thought the female voices on the first track were cool, but all i could think with the lead vocalist voice was pretentious. Sorry, but no.

This is just a bad album. None of it was memorable or groundbreaking or interesting. Thankfully it was only 41 minutes long. No need to listen.
