[video] Watch Dirty Projectors perform “About To Die” on Letterman

Backed by a string section!

- Nov 15, 2012

Dirty Projectors brought a touch of the posh life to David Letterman last night, with the dense avant-pop of “About To Die” and a ymusic, a classical music sextet. After loudly announcing during a commercial break that they would “class the joint up a little,” David Longstreth and co. performed a revelrous and punchy rendition of the Swing Lo Magellan track, transporting the audience to a world of flappers, gypsies, complicated philosophy, and whatever else goes on in Longstreth's head when he writes these tunes.

Swing Lo Magellan and the About To Die EP are both out now via Domino.
