Double bassist Nat Baldwin will perform in the WestCo Café on Friday. Come hear songs from his new record In the Hollows before its release on April 29. You may also know him the bassist for the Dirty Projectors, or as a contributor to albums by Grizzly Bear, Vampire Weekend, and Department of Eagles. He is a brilliant musician, and, incidentally, learned some of his chops from Anthony Braxton, with whom he studied while living in Middletown. Check out his luminous new music video for “In the Hollows.”
Opening will be HAP, whose music has been variously described as “lend[ing] itself well to dancing” and sounding “like Dirty Projectors played out of a gameboy,” and who will perform in the company of The Admiral, an antique radio, their other-than-human fifth bandmate. Check out their phenomenal album Corners here.
Also opening will be producer Clement Gelly, premiering his sample-ample new album Salvatore’s Paradise, available here. Check out this song cowritten with Jack Ladd ’15, and see also “Wake Up,” a rap track.
Date: Friday, April 18
Time: 7-10 p.m.
Location: The WestCo Café
