Dirty Projectors is a 6-piece from Brooklyn and have been kicking it since '03. It's hard to put this band into one genre. Lots of vocal interplay and beautiful harmonies. I can't get enough. Here's the visual for their chill tune "Gun Has No Trigger".
Dirty Projectors @ Capitol Theatre - 9/25/12 (via Citybug ) There were a couple guys in the crowd that were yelling in-between songs "Let's Go! Wooooo!" If this was a reference to a song, frontman Dave Longstreth didn't seem to get it. "Where you want to go?" he asked politely. After more incoherent woooooing, Dave reassured the crowd, "We're going there, man." And go there, they did. Dave and the band performed most of Swing Lo Magellan just as meticulously arranged and produced as [...]

We didn't get to see too many mind-boggling short-form videos this week, but we did get one long one in which one of our greatest, most ambitious indie bands takes its packed-to-bursting, unapologetically pretentious musical maximalism to the screen, staying bizarre and compelling throughout. That alone makes it a pretty good week. Check for our picks below. Read More...
Dirty Projectors have a new 20-minute short film, a project called Hi Custodian that was apparently influenced by short films such as Kanye West's Runaway and Prince's Purple Rain .

Each band member plays a certain role, the entirety of which encapsulates " a surreal narrative about spiritual death and rebirth". With Amber Coffman and Haley Dekle portraying various roles, including two girls from the British Midlands, Nat Baldwin as a truck driver and a newborn child, [...]

Filed under: News , Video YouTube The night was young. Short-shorted hip kids stood anxiously in line outside New York City's Landmark Sunshine Theater, humming the asymmetrical melodies of the Dirty Projectors .

The Dirty Projectors ' 21 minute long music film, Hi Custodian has arrived to the Internet, following last night's New York premiere at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema.
