Nat Baldwin - "In the Hollows"

New MusicjeremyComment

Nat Baldwin, bassist of Dirty Projectors, has been very quietly maintaining a solid solo output for a few years now. His songs usually center around his slightly warbled voice (often leaping up into a falsetto) and his twisty, deft bass playing. His new record is coming out soon, and the title track, "In the Hollows", has been unmasked. It features some staccato string surges behind Baldwin's trademark, David Longstreth-esque (coincidence?) voice, before more band members wriggle out of the woodwork. His work has always had a bit more grit and soul than a lot of DP's, and this song is a nice tasting platter to warm us up for his record.

In the Hollows is out April 29 via Western Vinyl.
