Coming from the whale based mindscape of Mount Wittenberg Orca, out today, “All We Are” is pretty weird. But in the same way that every once in a while you find yourself saying “sofa” is a strange word. “So-FA!” Or when you see purple flowers or lightning bugs and just cannot fathom the wholly bizarre brilliance of nature. Here, Dirty Projectors and Bjork, a powerful pairing, harmonize and loll down a tinkering path of majestic voices and light cymbals, the kind of bedtime song you’d expect, well, a whale to sing. A big, gorgeous fucking whale. You should buy the whole of Mount Wittenberg Orca, currently digital only, as all of the proceeds go directly to the National Geographic Society Ocean Initiative.
