Cold War Kids w/Baths 

When: Mon., March 28, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $20-$22
Baths is just one of three aliases wunderkind Will Wiesenfeld invokes to share his inventive music with the world. But it’s unmistakably as Baths that the 22-year old produces his best work. At points recalling Flying Lotus, Toro Y Moi, M83 and Tim Hecker, Baths grew out of Wiesenfeld’s introduction to L.A.’s notorious “beat scene,” a loose collective of artists headed by Daedelus, FlyLo and Nosaj Thing who make druggy, off-kilter electronic music that’s as addictive as it is difficult to pin down. Cerulean, Baths’ critically-lauded debut released last year on anticon. fits the script of this micro-genre nicely, though improves upon it by featuring Wiesenfeld’s impressive croon atop ambitious tracks that could be just as compelling as instrumentals. Of course, it wouldn’t be beat music if, like every other element, his vocals weren’t often tweaked dramatically. But it’s hard to deny that even their mere presence reveals a pop sensibility that separates Baths from the rest.
