I have been waiting so hard for this new Baths album to arrive, and that did in-fact happen over the weekend and I have had it on repeat ever since.
“Romaplasm” is a fantastic 12-track collection of just perfectly awesome Baths music, and I have no doubt this is going to be my No. 1 album of the year – I mean I’m already frothing on it big time, and it’s only been out for a few days, so I can only imagine how I’m going to feel about it after a while of absorption.
“I’m not as emotive with real world things as I am when I’m neck deep in anime, video games, books or comics. I wanted to be honest with myself that this is where my heart lies and where I get the most emotion out of life. I wanted a record that mirrors those emotions but in an indirect way.
In making this record, I wanted to be as self indulgent as possible. To not think too hard about what I was doing stylistically as much as honing in on what material felt inspired and felt really good to make,” Baths says. “Those were the only things that I wanted to pursue.” – Baths
“Romaplasm” is available everywhere now via Anticon.
