Twenty-three year old electronic wunderkind Baths has just released a brand new single called Miasma Sky and a whack of tour dates, including June 9th at Horseshoe Tavern.

I loved the eerie, skeletal hummings of his first record Cerulean (2010, Anticon) and have high hopes for this new record, which is rumoured to be a bit more “pop and hi-fi,” but with darker lyrics inspired by a recent battle with an e. coli infection (??? lol wut)

For those of you who don’t practice disease epidemiology in your spare time, miasma was a popular theory held by medieval scientists who believed that pandemics such as The Black Death were caused by sickened air (nasty vapours, y’all) emitted by rotting corpses.
