Rolling Stone (p.64) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[O]ddball harmonies still carry the day. On 'Irresponsible Tune,' leader Dave Longstreth harnesses the magic of bygone vocal groups like the Orioles and the Comedian Harmonists..."
Q (Magazine) (p.97) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's the amped-up riff in the middle of 'Offspring Are Blank' that best sums up their playful approach. They often flex their muscles without feeling the need to land a killer blow."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.91) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he voices of Haley Dekle and Amber Coffman pour over it all like an expensive hotel-foyer water feature."

- Seeking refuge from the hustle and bustle of Brooklyn in the rural solitude of Delaware County, New York, Dirty Projectors mastermind David Longstreth disconnected from the modern world to write and record the band's sixth album, Swing Lo Magellan. Incorporating the creepy otherworldliness he experienced while writing during the harsh winter, the album finds the band's experimental sound moving into eerier waters, mirroring the spooky, seemingly haunted atmosphere of the house it was created in. Based on the album's first single, "Gun Has No Trigger," which arrived late in the spring, Swing Lo Magellan should prove to be yet another in a long line of unique musical experiences that the band has become known for.
