Dip into the second effort from Will ‘Baths’ Wiesenfeld.
2010’s Cerulean was a tasty stew of ambient, alt.rap and The Postal Service-indebted indietronica; whilst hardly the most bruising release of the year, it won Wiesenfeld a squad of loyal fans, and rightly so. Follow-up Obsidian arrives after some low-key dabblings under the Geotic alias, and sees the producer’s picaresque music swerve off into darker territory. Head here to stream the new LP, courtesy of Pitchfork Advance. Interested parties should make their way towards our recent chat with Wiesenfeld, a catch-up covering everything from serious illness to Daedelus.
Obsidian is out this month on Anticon.
