Dirty Projectors’ frontman David Longstreth takes on writing and directing roles in the band’s latest creative feat, a short film called Hi Custodian. We’ve been hearing about this piece for quite some time, but today we finally get to feast our eyes on the final product. Longstreth describes the themes of the film as being “made out of a dream.” Throw in the already imaginative tunes of the Dirty Projectors, including alternative mixes and unreleased jams from the Swing Lo Magellan sessions, and what you have hear is a rather elevated experience for the mind.
Ticking in at just over 20 minutes, we are a bit more happy about the length compared to the brevity of Flying Lotus’ short film from yesterday. Although this is sure to test your intellectual capacity just as much. Sidenote: How much does this remind you of Monty Python and the Holy Grail‘s cinematography?
Watch the film below and come back to share your thoughts. [via]
