Baths, Groundislava, Time Wharp

When: Wed., Oct. 9, 8:30 p.m. 2013

Before the release of his third album, Obsidian, in May, Will Wiesenfeld could have been called the producer behind Baths, a project of glowing, glitch-driven hymns meant in part for dance-floor revelry and a headphone perch. But Obsidian reveals a great synthesis of Wiesenfeld's roles as singer, songwriter, producer and arranger. Gorgeous and thoughtful beats are laced by serpentine piano and prismatic strings but topped by confessional tunes about a fear of aging, an aversion to commitment and the general paralysis of seeing adulthood not on the horizon but on the pillow next to you each morning. Baths used to fit close to the rank-and-file masses of laptop beatmakers; Obsidian, however, finds him pairing risk with reward in tunes that don't dance past his worries but instead examine and endure them, however depressive and dark the prospect may be. —Grayson Currin
