“Knotty Pine” (Live Video)




    Another low-key version of a song from the Dark Was the Night charity album is up on Pitchfork.tv. Dirty Projectors’ “Knotty Pine,” performed here without the aid of David Byrne, is captured on camera before a small and reverent Brooklyn crowd by filmmaker (and La Blogothèque mastermind) Vincent Moon.


    Amber Coffman is in fine voice as she begins the song, and Dave Longstreth and Angel Deradoorian join her by the second verse. As the song progresses, the entire audience is encouraged to sing along, making this a short but uplifting and moving addition to the series of video clips shot to support the album.
