Really, that's all it takes for me. It's that simple.
Example: Nat Baldwin.
Nat hails from Portsmouth, NH and plays in Tigersaw and Dirty Projectors. After dabbling in free improv and experimental music, he started to lay down tracks of his own stuff in 2004. The resultant sound is simple and heart wrenching. Well paced and engaging. Creative and new.
Nat will be performing with the Dirty Projectors on April 20th at Bennington College.
Nat Baldwin at MySpace. The unreleased songs available for stream are fantastic.
Purchase the 8 song EP, Lights Out, directly from Broken Sparrow Records.
