WATCH: Dirty Projectors Get Down In The Dumps For “Offspring Are Blank” Video

Last time we checked in on one of our favorite groups, Dirty Projectors, they had just released a pretty solid EP. Now the experimental Brooklyn quintet is back with a video for "Offspring Are Blank" off of 2012's critical triumph Swing Lo Magellan.

Directed and starring the group's frontman--David Longstreth--the video (which was premiered on Pitchfork yesterday) follows Longstreth as he walks through piles of trash in a hazmat suit and plays with the rest of his band in the peaceful beauty of crystal-clean nature. It could work as a pretty convincing recycling PSA if you ask us!

Dirty Projectors have also just announced two exclusive tour dates covering both coasts: New York's Carnegie Hall on January 11, 2013 and the Troubadour in Los Angeles on February 5th.

You can check out the entire video for "Offspring Are Blank" below and if you're lucky enough to go to the Carnegie Hall show, make sure to pick up one of the 250 hand-numbered copies of a special “Offspring Are Blank” white label 7" single backed with the brand new song “There's A Fire.”
