For mercurial L.A. music-maker Will Wiesenfeld, Baths has been a long time coming. Wiesenfeld’s trip began at age 4 when he willed his parents into enrolling him in piano lessons. By 13, he’d begun creating his own music using Digital Performer and a MIDI keyboard — a brief, ill-advised foray into Eurobeat that was set right when Wiesenfeld heard Bjork for the first time. Mind blown, he quickly boned up on viola, contrabass, and guitar and took the name [Post-Foetus], stringing together countless live configurations to execute his increasingly inimitable compositions. [Post-Foetus]’ fourth album — a Dntel-ish, song-based melange dubbed The Fabric — was released on Mu-Nest in January.
Though Baths represents the next evolution in Wiesenfeld’s oeuvre — which also includes the excellent ambient project Geotic — it came together under nigh-opposite circumstances. Last September, [Post-Foetus] was invited by L.A. electronicist Daedelus to share a bill with a handful of local Beat Music luminaries. Witnessing a burgeoning movement firsthand sparked something in Wiesenfeld that the ‘burbs never could. In a fit of inspiration, Baths was born, though not into a preexisting scene. As is to be expected, this music goes its own way: fueled by spontaneity, tempered by Wiesenfeld’s background in classic songwriting. Those two influences collide in glorious ways on Cerulean, Baths’ stunning debut.
On Friday, May 4th, Baths will bring his musical talents to the El Rey in Los Angeles. Expect to hear the top power tracks such as “Miasma Sky” and “Worsening” off his album ‘Obsidian’. Furthermore, the song “Animals” should make its way into the setlist. The track has over 22.8 million plays on Spotify.
The concert takes place at the El Rey on Friday, May 4th and is presented by Goldenvoice. Doors are at 8 PM with the show starting at 9 PM. Tickets start at $20.00. Purchase tickets HERE. OR, try your luck by entering our contest below:
