Another week another rather special video that we here at SG have found so you don't have to.

We've cheated a little as this is another video from the awesome Dark Was The Night compilation that also featured Yeasayers track Tightrope which we featured in this very article a few weeks back (HERE).

This time round, its the Dirty Projectors turn to amaze and astound and whilst we didn't think too much of their latest LP Bitte Orca (Check that review HERE, apparently we're the only site in a ten mile radius that wasn't too happy with it) we have to say that this more than makes up for it.

The video is for the song Knotty Pine and we instantly fell in love with it's melody, rhythm and overall atmosphere, especially when the entire room full of people begin the chorus chant even though they don't know the words.

You can skip the first two minutes if you like as it's just a small interview about the music but it's pretty cool too so we recommend watching from start to finish.

Check it out just below and let us know what you thought.
