Dome Branches: The MVP Demos12" Vinyl Packaging
Label: Western Vinyl
As the title suggests, this is a collection of demos for Nat Baldwin's (Dirty Projectors) five-year-old debut album, Most Valuable Player—yet it's also more than that. These recordings capture Baldwin playing his songs live for the very first time, with various friends and musicians popping by to help him flesh out the instrumentation. All said, Dome Branches is an unequivocally novel and organic “album,” and while many of you might not have heard the record in the first place, the music here is all beautifully performed and refined.
