If there’s any indication by the number of people on our editorial staff who are bummed for not being able to cover BATHS when they hit RNR HOTEL this FRIDAY (with Braids & Star Slinger), you know it’s going to be a show that’s talked about regardless of how good or bad it’ll be. However, let’s forget all Pitchfork/Gorilla Vs. Bear/Brooklyn Vegan/etc. buzz for a second and get real — Baths is Will Wiesenfeld; a one man free for all on your earlobes, playing chillwave love songs style akin to the tricks and tunes of Toro Y Moi or sometimes even Passion Pit. It’s the kind of music that make you want to stay out in the sun (despite the winter cold) for just a minute longer. You want to hear it all because it’s brilliantly optimistic and yet complex in its emotional palette.
Check out the video for Lovely Bloodflow off the album Cerulean below.
We’ve got a pair of tickets to this Friday performance up for grabs. TO WIN: Link me to your favorite song to listen to while walking around DC/VA/MD/Wherever you are.
I’ll go first:
