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 to expand on his first musical undertaking, an experimental ambient project called Geotic.  Early last year, Wiesenfeld came out with his biggest leap yet for Geotic’s discography, 2017’s Abysma, a much more structured approach to songwriting than the minimal loops and samples from his previous records.  These new tracks actually felt like pop songs, completed thoughts as opposed to highly-emotional fragments.  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 sounds like a lost b-side from The Postal Service, enlisting some staccato synth leads and off-kilter rhythmic effects that prevent it from feeling like another run-of-the-mill indietronic track that you’d find in your Tycho playlist on Pandora.  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.  Check out the first track below and grab some colored wax after the ‘buy’ link.
