Hey, the Dirty Projectors Made You a Mini-Movie

Because Kanye did it, and also because twenty minutes leaves more time for costume changes, which are fun, the Dirty Projectors made a short film called Hi Custodian using music from their latest album, Swing Lo Magellan. David Longstreth wrote, directed, and stars along with the rest of the band; there is a lot of pretty scenery. And a solemn religious initiation of some kind. Also: a car-wash, patty cake, mysterious injuries, and a conjoined french braid. You can watch the whole thing right now!
