Review & Photos: Baths, Houses @ Great American Music Hall, 6/29/13

Is there a more apt way to punctuate a hectic SF Pride weekend than a sold-out, electro-dazed dance party? Will Wiesenfeld, otherwise known as BATHS, closed out a three-month-long tour on Saturday, with openers Houses and D33J also in attendance. Spirits were high, pride was had, and BATHS commanded the stage. Despite their minimal set-up - Wiesenfeld on keyboard and vocals, and just one accomplice to cover the guitar and a few layers of schizophrenic electronics - their energy was huge and the audience was enthusiastic. The sold out show was a LA-fest; fellow Los Angeles-based electronic acts D33J and [...]

Review & Video: On experiencing The Postal Service's 'Give Up' a decade after it was one's favorite album @ Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, 4/10/13

The Postal Service - "We Will Become Silhouettes" @ Robert Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts (UC Davis) - 4/10/13 from The Bay Bridged on Vimeo. When The Postal Service released their only album, Give Up, a decade ago in 2003, I was just getting my driver's license. It quickly became the only album in my car, a fitting choice as its songs lyrically validated everything I felt as an emotional 16-year-old. Regardless of one's age, so many people are still tied together by Give Up, with many viewing it as a seminal coming of age album or their soundtrack [...]

Review: Mi Ami release ‘Steal Your Face’ with Baths, Ecoli at Amnesia 4/29

Photos by Rachel Keenan and Nicole Browner Maybe it was Amnesia's ruby-red glow properly enveloping The Baths' 60s tinged dark-gaze that did it. Having now seen them on multiple occasions, The Baths' live set last Thursday validated all the flattering commentary I'd heard in passing; either way, the four-piece owned that space in both sound and sight. The Baths weld several decades of melancholy into one timelessly dreary sound, and reinforced it onstage with fashion choices of velvet blazers and monochrome stripes. The summer looks quite fortuitous for The Baths: they've partnered with Ty Segall, first at Bottom of the [...]
