Dirty Projectors Clean Up, Go Strange in ‘About to Die’ Video

+

Not sure what more needs to be said about this one—it’s Dirty Projectors adding to their murderer’s row of 2012 success stories by condensing imagery from their recently released movie, Hi Custodian, for a trippy-dippy clip to align with “About to Die,” one of the many standout jams from Swing Lo Magellan. If all of that read a little cluttered, it’s alright; Dave Longstreth and company have done so many interesting things this year that it’s hard to keep track if you’re not one of those diehard DP fans, of which there are easily thousands. But here we are: The band dressed up in their best cult-meets-couture impression, coasting through landscapes and soundstages while Longstreth sings about being on the edge of death. It’s just cool, I don’t know. Your day’s too long to avoid listening to a great song once more, if you haven’t already worn out Swing Lo Magellan time and time again.
