    Nat Baldwin's got a whole lot of game. The Brooklyn based musician's most distinguished gig to date comes propping up The Dirty Projectors with his tremendous contributions as the group's full-time bass player. You've also probably heard him somewhere in the mix of both Vampire Weekend's Contra and Department of Eagles' In Ear Park.

    He's also produced a bevy of work as a solo artist...just he and a stand-up bass, for the most part. It's the kind of combination that seems a little suspect...as if it shouldn't really work. Then he plays, and he sings, and it does...an imaginative pairing of scratchy pulls on his bass and a distinctive falsetto. Comparisons to Arthur Russell and his buddy David Longstreth seem in order.

    Check out a live performance of the track "Weights", from his fourth album People Changes, shot for terroreyes.tv on some basketball courts in Brooklyn, below.
