You've got to hand it to Dirty Projectors. After all, the band somehow made all of frontman David Longstreth's most uneven and insanely complex ideas work. With constantly fluctuating song arrangements and even more remarkable album concepts -- reinterpreting a Black Flag album, a 25-musician overdubbed exploration of oil and 9/11 and even an album about sheep -- they've become one of the smartest bands to grace the indie airwaves in the past decade.

Signed to Domino Records, the band put out their critically adored sixth album "Bitte Orca" last year, propelled by the single "Stillness is the Move." They've since gone on to release a mini-LP, "Mount Wittenberg Orca," with famed Icelander Bjork.

Dirty Projectors stopped by The Current studio to play a few songs.

Songs performed: "Cannibal Resource", "Temecula Sunrise" and "No Intention."
