Why do we like this?
I've been pretty amped for Baths upcoming LP, Obsidian. Will Wiesenfeld, who fronts the band, floored me with his freshman LP, Cerulean, back in 2010, and I've been more or less biding my time for his next release since then.

He recently dropped  the new single "Ironworks" from the upcoming album (due May 28), and my excitement continues to grow. Wiesenfeld's harmonies in "Ironworks" are slick and on point.  And, as always, Baths really works the silky falsetto in a way that few others can. Somewhere out there is a member of a boy's choir listening to this and crying.

But Baths' real genius is in his tightly honed production. The track features softly percussive ambient melodies chopped and layered over piano and string arrangements that are allowed to develop a bit more than on Cerulean. Overall "Ironworks," and Obsidian in general (based on the handful of leaked songs) seem to take on a darker more brooding vibe than Baths' earlier work. (I mean, check out the album cover).

But dark can be good. And if Baths wants to do dark, I'm more than happy to indulge him. Mark your calendars. I'm expecting big things.
