Published Dec 12, 2014Will Wiesenfeld is best known as Baths, but the electronic musician also sometimes branches out as Geotic. It's under this name that he's making a trilogy of albums called Eon Isle, and following this year's Morning Shore, he has now announced the next in the series: Sunset Mountain will come out digitally on December 16.
Pitchfork reports that the album was made entirely using Wiesenfeld's voice. This makes it a fitting successor to Morning Shore, which was entirely made using guitar. Morning Shore was recorded in Lake Arrowhead, CA.
For a taste of the all-vocal sound, hear the lush, wordless composition "Flit Around the Rivulets" below. It sounds almost like a classical composition, but with layers of reverb-swathed vocals in place of an orchestra. The album cover, painted by Wiesenfeld's mother Jude, above.
Wiesenfeld will complete his Eon Isle trilogy with the Geotic album Evening Sky this spring. It will be entirely piano.
