Dirty Projectors: “Stillness is the Move” Video

With a video that’s even more wonderfully perplexing than the track it’s set to, Dirty Projectors continue their satisfying output for 2009. Beautifully shot on Mount Equinox in Vermont, the clip for “Stillness is the Move” features Dave Longstreth leading a llama and inexplicably spinning in place with guitar in hand, while the ladies of Dirty Projectors (Amber Coffman, Angel Deradoorian, and Haley Dekle) frolic with leashed huskies, show off delightfully awkward synchronized dance moves, and harmonize together in mysterious mountain-dweller garb. On second though, maybe this video is less perplexing than explanatory; clearly these cut-off peoples just heard Mariah Carey for the first time and reconstructed some smooth R&B tunes through their own cultural lens. Right? Well, either way… I’m down.
