The Dirty Projectors have an excellent album and “Stillness is the Move” has been the summer jam and a solid contender for any year end list of 2009’s best songs. And now, the slightly askew pop song has a slightly askewed video to go with it.
According to Stereogum the video (which looks shot somewhere on the west coast but specifically the Oregon coast and more likely Northern California) was directed Matthew Lessner. The video, much like the song, has recognizable features to it but it’s strange and weird just the same. It showcases the synchronized dancing (single ladies dance from Beyonce?) of the Dirty Projector ladies in light blue jumpsuits and Dave Longstreth is some sort of llama herder.
