It's been almost a year since the Dirty Projectors announced that upright bassist Nat Baldwin would be rejoining the band. Since then Nat has become more of a household indie name than he was when his third solo album was released. "Most Valuable Player", released on April 29th of 2008, was produced by Grizzly Bear's Chris Taylor and features contributions by Taylor and the Dirty Projector's Dave Longstreth. It was also around that time that Nat recorded a Daytrotter session which you can still download now.
Most recently, Nat contributed to Vampire Weekend's new album, Contra. He also opened the show they played at Bowery Ballroom on the night they found out that album hit #1. The pictures in this post are from that show. Tonight (1/23), you can catch Nat playing solo again at Sycamore in Brooklyn. More Bowery pics and a video below...
