The sun must shine bright in Southern California, for that spot on the map has, in recent and good time, established itself as the music nest of all grooves happy and bright. In the current wave of “one-man music machines” emerges Baths, a force of musical innovation and smart lyrical ideas all packed into one very special individual known as Will Wiesenfeld.
A champion of music nerds-like counterparts Toto Y Moi and Nosaj Thing-this beat machine (who only a year ago was working out of his bedroom) has fused hip hop with drum loops, delays, reverbs, and some pretty elegant vocals and synth work to produce a couple of effective sonic results worthy enough to release as Cerulean, his debut album effort. And with that, good ol’ Will reaffirms the direction of pop these days-dreamy, laidback and very promising.
