Rise Above will drop plenty of jaws, and, like Deerhoof, Dirty Projectors are restructuring rock on a compositional level rather than a sonic one. To murder a cliché, whatever unfurls from Longstreth's brain next isn't anyone's guess- Rise Above, for all its fastidiousness and minor drawbacks, finally displays the perfect counterargument to the portrait of him as another nutso college dropout: It displays a pattern.
The result, Rise Above, reimagines Black Flag's ragged hymns of rage and angst into smart but fractured bursts of wiry guitar (imagine King Sunny Ade after ten cups of coffee) accompanied by breathy, ethereal vocals, occasional interjections of strings and woodwinds, and a precise but flexible rhythm section

RiseAbove " is the latest album by indie rock band Dirty Projectors released on September 11, 2007. All the songs have already been performed live and are often paired with material from the New Attitude EP, released in 2006. While the disc could be considered a concept album, the main idea and driving force is an attempt by Dave Longstreth to rewrite the entire BlackFlag album, " Damaged ", from memory. Rather than short, angry shouts of protest, the songs often double or triple ( quadruple in the case of SprayPaint (TheWalls) ) the original lengths of the songs. These interlocking patterns can be found vocally and instrumentally in many recent Dirty Projectors arrangements. The other songs from "Damaged " that were abandoned are: . Party, DamagedII, PaddedCell, LifeOfPain, and DamagedI.
The Dirty Projectors - Rise Above. So apparently I was wrong to hate. When I first heard that some indie band was covering Black Flag's legendary album, Rise Above, I dismissed it as a truly unfortunate, laughable combination. I never really liked Black Flag, and to have some pitchfork darlings give their take of a stripped down, aggressive hardcore album couldn't have helped the cause too much. I imagined this album as a tepid reworking of the songs chord progressions but with accordions and ukeleles or something pompous like that
