That Swing Lo Magellan turned out to be another remarkable album from the Dirty Projectors was hardly a surprise, nor was the fact that it contained at least one moment of skittish vocals and soaring trademark harmonies from the girls, in "About to Die". What you might not have guessed upon the album's July release was that front man Dave Longstreth would turn out to be quite the compelling filmmaker.
We got a taste of his visuals with the faces of "Gun Has No Trigger" and more recently a much fuller demonstration of his talents in the short film Hi Custodian, produced in conjunction with Pitchfork. This latest video, for "About to Die" comes from that film, and it's a stunner. Taking its cues from the song's title, D-Long tries out a selection of deathbeds here, surrounded by the aptly clad band. There's a backlot bedroom set in the midst of the Hollywood Hills, with Amber and Haley appropropriately glammed up, in contrast with an ascetic, seemingly Amish bedroom. In both surroundings, our bedridden hero sings for all he's worth.
And then there's the 18-wheeler that seems to be trucking these dioramas around, into whose cargo bay the band--and at one point a collection of clergy from many faiths--all cram themselves. Sound confusing? We recommend the entire Hi Custodian - but until you've got 20 minutes for that, spare four for our NV Music Video of the Day: "About to Die" from Dirty Projectors.
