Another Jelly NYC Pool Party at the Williamsburg Waterfront is rapidly approaching, and this time, the bill is a bit more, well, blogger friendly (at least in our eyes.) The Dirty Projectors, as you know, are vying for record of the year with Bitte Orca; yet, the extremely massive Magnolia Electric Co. catalog, with newest edition Josephine, continue to satisfy our mellow souls daily. Crystal Antlers, who are replacing White Denim (much to our bemuse) are a dark horse for us -- their EP did receive a "Best New Music" from Pitchfork in 2008, while their newest album Tentacles, has been met with mixed reviews. Needless to say, we are loving the set of up the new Pool Parties and can't wait to see how the intricate sounds of the Dirty Projectors translates to the outdoors, and how Magnolia handle the sunshine.
See you all there!
