Dirty Projectors released album Swing Lo Magellan last year, but that doesn’t stop them from continuing to release stuff. They’ve just released a new music video for one of the tracks (many) highlights: “Impregnable Question.”

In it, a runner runs through roads while passing through the Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks.

This will be the last video made from the album, as the video’s youtube description said the following:

“Impregnable Question” is the sixth and final video from Dirty Projectors’ album Swing Lo Magellan.

This may be the last thing we get from DP for a while, so enjoy it. Read the rest of this entry »

Dirty Projectors @ Governors Ball (June 8, 2013)

By Will Oliver, June 11th 2013 — with 1 comment

Dirty Projectors haven’t slowed down one bit since the release of the fantastic Swing Lo Magellan last year. The band is arguably in the peak of their career, with a rock solid live show that touches on all types of genres and tempos, there’s something for everyone to get out of a Dirty Projectors set. They were on point on Saturday, playing to an eager crowd that was ready for the sounds that only a David Longstreth band could produce.

Dirty Projectors lineup consisted only of Dave Longstreth, Amber Coffman, and Haley Dekle which made it’s impact obvious. This was going to be based heavy on the trio’s vocals – which is never a bad thing. The trio held close to their more vocal reliant tracks, playing “See What She Seeing” and “Impregnable Question”. All it took was a guitar and three voices, but in a place like St. Ann’s, it was more than enough to fine sustainable for the evening.

The effect of Hurricane Sandy is going to be felt around these parts for a while. It’s good to see bands getting together to do something special for a good cause. The So So Glos have a show tomorrow, and now a huge show has been announced in Brooklyn Heights.

On Saturday the OCCUPY SANDY! Benefit Concert will take place at St. Ann & The Holy Trinity on 157 Montague Street in Brooklyn Heights. The performance will feature acoustic sets (in order to honor the solidarity of those who are still without power) from:

Real Estate / Vampire Weekend / Devendra Banhart / Hamilton Leithauser, Walter Martin & Peter Bauer from The Walkmen / Cass McCombs / David Longstreth, Amber Coffman and Haley Dekle from Dirty Projectors

(they will perform in that order)

The suggested donation is $30, and tickets are limited to 2 per purchase. Grab your tickets here, it’s going to a good cause, and you will get many great acts playing in a rare acoustic setting. It should be something special.

Dirty Projectors have recorded a song called “While You’re Here”, which is a tribute to their friend Gerard Smith, former TV On The Radio bassist. Smith sadly lost a battle with lung cancer last year. It’s a lovely song, and I don’t think anything else needs to be said but this following tweet for Dave Longstreth

It’s set to appear on their new About To Die EP. Take a listen to it below.

[watch]: Dirty Projectors Short Film: Hi Custodian

By Will Oliver, September 7th 2012 — with 1 comment

Last night I caught the preview screening of the Dirty Projectors short film, Hi Custodian at the Sunshine Cinema. It was really outstanding to see/hear the film on the highest quality screens/sound system. The film was a great watch, and interestingly put together.

As promised, the band have uploaded the whole film to youtube. You can watch it below.

The film was written and directed by Dave Longstreth. During a Q&A after the screening last night, Longstreth spoke about how he went into this without any prior film experience. One fan brought up the influence of Kanye’s short film, Runaway, and Longstreth agreed, and had high praise for the film. He also is a big fan of Die Hard, and Ghostbusters.
