Sprouting from the foundations of previous underground projects [Post-Foetus] and gorgeous ambient venture Geotic, 21-year-old Will Wiesenfeld has blossomed into something with a sound so current you could stick it in a bun and complain about the spelling later.
Baths is utterly absorbing with its stomach-tingling falsettos and choppy, unwieldy sampling punctuated by outside-the-lines clatters and clanks.
‘Apologetic Shoulderblades’ boasts Wiesenfeld’s choral vocals smeared over a distorted hip-hop/electronica mash-up while ‘Lovely Bloodflow’ wriggles inside your head, ruffles your feathers and leaves you head-nodding on a bus while the rain batters the pedestrians outside.
Cerulean is the perfect mix of subtlety, heart-tugging synth and thumping beats with cracking tracks such as ‘Maximalist’ or ‘Aminals’ highlighting a welcome paucity of filler.
FlyLo and Daedelus appear to have opened a few doors while forging their success and if the result is albums from the likes of Baths and Brainfeeder up-and-comer Teebs then long may it continue.
