Tracks for Obsidian:
Boomkat Product Review
Maudlin beatscapes and angst-ridden electro-pop from Baths on 'Obsidian', the follow-up to 2010's 'Cerulean'. As seems to be entirely commonplace for Anticon artists these days, Will Wiesenfeld seems in thrall to the plaintive chamber-folk of people like Sufjan Stevens and Peter Broderick, working with an aspirational toolbox of strings, guitars and vocal harmonies, favouring hushed, clos-mic'd production, and trying to put his own stamp on the formula with some dusty drum loops, erratic electronic squiggles and stuttering, disruptive edits. Elsewhere, as on 'Miasma Sky', the touchstone seem to be Hot Chip and The Field, with a touch of Antony Hegarty's pained falsetto. The lyrical sentiments are a bit high-school, and when you look beyond the surface there isn't a great deal going on that you haven't heard before, but the execution is solid.
