Geotic – Mend

Anyone who’s had the fortune to see Baths live will know that Will Wiesenfeld is not one to stand still. Hunched over his gear, his torso rocks metronomically while his arms flail in front of him, pawing and dabbing at his bank of dials with a controlled mania that is both enthralling and exhausting to witness.

So what to expect from his side project, Geotic? Probably not an album of blissfully ambient guitar loops, but that’s what he’s given us. Written over just four days in late December (a revelation in itself given the depth and attention to detail of Baths’s album Cerulean) it is a warm and understated record, the songs drifting into one another to create a sonic collage that intermittently lulls and grabs; a perfect early January record to numb the trudge back to work. Best of all though, he’s released it for free on his Angelfire page, where you can find a load of his early work under the same name.

Go here to get the album and see below for a little sampler.
