Baths and Young Fathers

Tonight's bill features two sides of the same coin, if that coin is murky electronic beats. The headliner is Baths, AKA Will Wiesenfeld, a Southern Californian whose 2013 album Obsidian is a nifty little headphone world where porcelain falsetto vocals swirl around the bloodless thud of cuddly lap-pop. The result is something like a less gregarious Passion Pit, or a more precious, helium-soaked Postal Service. Opening is Young Fathers, an experimental Scottish trio that made a splash over the past few years with two mixtapes that showcased a lo-fi, left-of-center take on hiphop. Their new album, Dead, delivers on that, immersing the group's raps and R&B into a deep well of glitchy fuzz. Young Fathers' boom-bap is intimate, dark, and not for the claustrophobic. If nothing else, roll to this show to hear what tastemaking alt-rap label Anticon is into these days. BEN SALMON
