Climax 

Covering Usher’s slick RnB song “Climax” for Triple J’s ‘Like A Version’ earlier today, Dirty Projectors may have just created the most surprisingly glorious indie track since Ben Howard took on “Call Me Maybe” last year.

More than handling Usher’s flying falsetto, David Longstreth’s parched vocals add the necessary grit, and when him and Amber Coffman let loose with the harmonies above the crunching synth, it’s something to behold.
