i go through all of this…

stereogum presents a tribute to bjork’s album post including contributions from artists such as the liars, bell, high places, the dirty projectors, xiu xiu, pattern is movement, evangelicals and atlas sound.

the dirty projectors

“I think what I took from Björk when I was obsessed with her in high school was her way with deconstruction. She writes these classic melodies but breaks them apart so that it’s sort of up to you as the listener to put them back together. The song ends up meaning so much more because of the effort you have to give to it. Out of a perverse habit, I tried to do the opposite with this recording: present the song like the unbroken stone it might have been. But I think I probably just arrived at a new deconstruction: Björk’s essence remains elusive!”

    The Dirty Projectors have done a great job. Among all the beautiful covers included in the tribute, this one really stands out. I posted it on my blog, too 🙂
