Watch Dirty Projectors Play Conan

By Tom Breihan / February 7, 2013

Last night on Conan, Dirty Projectors came through to play the fiery Swing Lo Magellan opener “Offspring Are Blank,” giving the world a rare opportunity to hear Dave Longstreth when he’s maybe just a tiny bit hoarse. The band’s whole itchy-perfectionist dynamic is always a powerful thing to witness in real time, and they rocked it out on the show. Watch the performance below.

Swing Lo Magellan is out now on Domino, and Conan’s I-no-longer-give-a-fuck “that was great” voice is maybe the saddest thing I’m exposed to on a regular basis.
