Nat Baldwin Announces New Album + Tour Dates (3 in Maine)

At this point it almost doesn’t seem fair to use Dirty Projectors as a reference point for Nat Baldwin (he plays bass in that group), whose strong solo work focuses on sparse orchestration of voice and double bass.

Now a few years out from his last release – 2008’s split 12″ with Extra Life – Baldwin is back with People Changes, to be released May 24 on Western Vinyl (which returns to two of the tracks from that split, as well as a cover of Arthur Russel’s “A Little Lost”). Guests on the recording include Matt Bauder (clarinets), Caley Monahon-Ward (violin), Brett Deschenes (trumpet), Will Glass (drums), Al Mead (guitar) and Jeremy Leclair (alto saxophone).

The album was apparently conceived in Maine (though ultimately recorded by Matt Walsh at Florida Keys Studio in New York City) and appropriately enough, the supporting tour kicks off in Portland at The Apohadion. It wraps up in May and includes another stop at BUOY Gallery in Kittery (where we last saw him play).

Read on for the People Changes cover and tracklist, plus full tour dates.
