Few artists of David Longstreth's generation have pushed back as persistently at the boundaries of their own sound, never settling for something easily categorizable. But does that make Dirty Projectors' music "experimental"? That, among other nerdy tangents, populate a conversation about Longstreth's early influences -- his older brother, a book about Beatles' recording techniques, and an eye-opening journey to Portland in the late Nineties, among other things. Longstreth also talks about his creative process and perfectionist tendencies, and how they led to a particularly fraught last-minute remix of Dirty Projectors' new 'Lamp Lit Prose' LP.
