RIYL: Baths, Steve Hauschildt, Gaussian Curve
Label: Ghostly International
2010 was a big year for Will Wiesenfeld, debuting the critically-acclaimed Cerulean LP on Anticon Records as Baths. That project has grown and evolved over the years, but he still finds time┬áto expand on his first musical undertaking, an experimental ambient project called Geotic.┬á Early last year, Wiesenfeld came out with his biggest leap yet for┬áGeotic’s discography, 2017’s Abysma,┬áa much more structured approach to songwriting than the┬áminimal loops and samples from his previous records.┬á These new tracks actually felt like pop songs,┬ácompleted thoughts as opposed to highly-emotional fragments.┬á Both styles are gripping in their own right, but Geotic’s upcoming full-length Traversa reveals Wiesenfeld exploring the traditional pop song even deeper.
The first available track Gondolier┬ásounds like a lost b-side from The Postal Service, enlisting some staccato synth┬áleads and off-kilter rhythmic effects that┬áprevent it from feeling like another run-of-the-mill indietronic track that you’d find in your Tycho playlist on Pandora.┬á After a decade into the Geotic project, Will continues to keep it fresh and relevant.
Ghostly International has 800 copies of the record on clear green vinyl.┬á Check out the first track below and grab some colored wax after the ‘buy’ link.
