We're gearing up for the release of the new Dirty Projectors album, Swing Lo Magellan, out next week. Stream the album now on NYTimes.com

David Longstreth has written and directed a short film, HI CUSTODIAN featuring music from Swing Lo Magellan and is slated for a summer release. The film stars members of the band and was shot over the course of five days in late April 2012 in several locations in Southern California.  Watch the new trailer exclusively on Pitchfork.TV YouTube's channel:


On July 9th, the band will perform a very special show at Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg that will be streamed live worldwide, in its entirety, exclusively on The Bowery Presents Live channel on YouTube. Tune in at 10 PM sharp EDT via http://youtube.com/thebowerypresents, where fans can join a conversation about the show, in real time (#DPsLive).

The morning after the show, four full songs from the Music Hall live stream will be available on-demand, at the same URL.

Catch the band on tour this summer.
