Will Wiesenfeld says he picked his nom de synth because, as a kid, he really liked baths. Though often lumped in with chillwave's warm, watery return to the womb, this singer-producer -- a classically trained pianist -- shows no signs he's bullshitting on his precociously excitable Anticon debut. Glitchy beats, hyperactive strums, gawky vocals, and eclectic samples pile up like notes in an augmented chord. Songs suit their titles: "Maximalist," "?." How was Baths to know there was a chill-out party going on?
