When Gold Panda phoned Treefort organizers at the last minute to cancel, Los Angeles producer Will Wiesenfeld booked a plane ticket to Boise within an hour to replace the band with his electro-pop project, Baths.
Treefort-goers were treated to Wiesenfeld's unique brand of electronic experimentation, which floats delicate falsetto vocals atop bubbly, bass-laden beats. As a classically trained musician, Wiesenfeld melds multiple layers of samples to create Baths' soft, intricate sound. His first full-length, Cerulean, was released on Anticon, inspiring praise and comparisons to chillwave band Toro Y Moi.
Wiesenfeld returned to Boise to open for electro-pop duo The Postal Service at its sold out May 28 performance at Knitting Factory, and the band will be back to headline a show Thursday, May 30, at Neurolux.
