Boomkat Product Review:
The first album from Will Wiesenfeld's new project combines the heavily compressed hip-hop production typical of the current LA scene with more experimental, song-based material. Across Cerulean, Wiesenfeld manages to make himself a one-man orchestra and choir, making music on 'Apologetic Shoulder Blades' and '4-' that's at once emotional, hard-hitting and technical. "Cerulean is the auspicious debut of L.A.'s Baths. Evolving out of Will Wiesenfeld's varied [Post-Foetus] project, and inspired by the energy of the city's burgeoning beat scene (Daedelus introduced Anticon to Baths), the record represents a clear departure from both - an often warm, acoustic-fueled electronic music that hews closer to the work of contemporaries like Toro Y Moi. By combining songwriting with self-sampling, raw musicianship with synthesized textures, and field recordings with propulsive beats, Baths has created a seething sound-cloud packed with bright moments and prone to unexpected turns."
