Dirty Projectors member Nat Baldwin is currently on a solo tour with Kurt Weisman and Travis Laplante. “These are two of my favorite musicians and people in the world,” Baldwin says in his myspace blog, “it’s a short tour, but my longest solo trip since 2008.” After recently playing Madison Square Garden with Dirty Projectors, Nat Baldwin returns to smaller venues to showcase his vocals and experimental upright bass playing, including this Monday at SUNY Purchase and Tuesday (11/23) at Sycamore. All dates below.
To follow up the recently released expanded edition of Bitte Orca, Dirty Projectors are releasing their second 7″ of 2010 on December 6. The 7″ features Bitte Orca‘s “No Intention” b/w their cover of Bob Dylan’s “As I Went Out One Morning.” DP previously released a different Dylan cover as part of a Levi’s promotion.
Bjork, who collaborated with Dirty Projectors on for-charity album Mount Wittenberg Orca earlier this year, also recently released a new single on iTunes called “The Comet Song.” All proceeds from the sale of the song are donated to the victims of the 2010 Pakistan Floods. And the song is actually the theme of the 2010 film Moomins and the Comet Chase whose director Maria Lindberg also directed the music video to the song which you can watch below.
