Video: Dirty Projectors – “No Intention”

by -

Any Dirty Projectors fans out there?

I admit I’m a bit late to the party on these guys, mainly because I initially wasn’t digging the lead vocals by Dave Longstreth (not the ladies, they’re fantastic). But I really like the lead guitar lines as well as the minimal sonic backdrop these guys/gals put together. This is probably my favorite tune they do:

The acoustic set-up is nice, but I think I actually prefer the electrified version of this song even more. The percussion and electric guitar just give it a bigger sound:

Anyone seen them live recently? I’d be curious what kind of energy they bring to a club show.
