I missed the first announcement about the new record from Geotic, the electronic/downtempo/looping project from Will Wiesenfeld, better known for Baths. Ghostly is home to the new LP called Abysma due end of March.
Previous material was more towards ambient, using loops of guitar taps and minimal synths with a drum machine to keep it all in motion, gorgeous stuff and an anchor of the soundtrack I use when I travel. The latest content is more polished, relying more heavily on synth and programming then pulling smaples and layering, but I love it none the less. It is an evolution, bordering on shimmy material.
I embedded the latest called “Nav”. If you dig, check out “Actually Smiling”.
Sure, it was hot. The Mohawk didn’t sell out, but it got close while still being a “comfortable crowd”, as I call it. It means you can mill about, check out different vantage points with out territorial conflict.
The busy lineup with D33J, Houses, Baths and Beisbol meant a doors to close night for your truly. I took plenty of pics, saw plenty of friends, maybe had a whisky and saw some great music. Join me as I (unsuccessfully) reminisce on a successful Friday night.

A little late notice on this one, and I offer my apologies, but you should head over to Mohawk this evening if you’re looking for a great show on a Friday night. Baths is the headliner and clearly the big draw, though you shouldn’t forget about the loaded undercard with Houses and D33J in support. You won’t find a much better show anywhere in town.
Photoguy Note: Beisbol is playing inside after. Stick around to check them out.
We provide your No Bummer soundtrack…
Béisbol is a brother duo based out of Portland, Jeff and Ryan Burian, brings us the latest song I will share as a background music to your summer. This has a tinge of Italian disco in the bassline and plenty of catchy Indie hooks to get you bobbing in time.
The bros will play the Baths aftershow at The Mohawk next week.
