Dirty Projectors have shared a video for their Swing Lo Magellan opener “Offspring Are Blank”, via Pitchfork.tv. The clip was directed by DPs frontman David Longstreth as part of the band’s “Hi Custodian” short film, and follows the video for “About to Die”.
The clip cuts between shots of the band playing in a space of sprawling, gorgeous greenery with images of mass construction, and what look like garbage plants. (Longstreth walks around in a protective yellow jumpsuit.)
Videos for Swing Lo Magellan cuts “The Socialites” and “Swing Lo Magellan” are scheduled to debut Thursday and Friday.
Dirty Projectors play Carnegie Hall on January 11, for which they’ll press a limited-edition “Offspring Are Blank” 7″ backed by a new song, “There’s a Fire”. It will be a white label pressing, hand-numbered in an edition of 250, only available at Carnegie Hall.
