Blissful indie-techno producer Geotic, alias of Will Wiesenfield (better-known as Baths), with another album packed with soulful and warm beats. Geotic's albums so far have contained dance music for dancing by yourself, for staring out of train windows: dance for when you're okay with being by yourself. And based on first single Gondolier, Traversa will continue that trend.

I'm not exactly sure why Will Wiesenfield needs two outlets for what is basically a similar type of music but he runs Geotic alongside his perhaps more well known Baths project. This has been getting multiple plays in the office this week and is the kind of album which is an office-uniting pleasant ear experience if personally I can't remember a single thing about it once it's over.
It's made up of assured electronic pop which most obviously recalls that of the Postal Service. Wiesenfield whispers effectively over tightly mapped electronics made more for your home listening experience than for dancefloor enjoyment. As our project description writer suggests, it's most suitable for dancing on your own to or for listening to whilst staring out of a train window. Litertally everything bar Wiesenfield's voice here is synthetic, the beats are minimal and joined by warm electronics and electric pianos. He leaves tracks like Harbor Drive instrumental to a point that they don't sit too far removed from the likes of Tycho or Ulrich Schnauss.
Though I can't quite get on board with my colleagues enthusiasm for this, it's an album I can enjoy without trying too hard. It has a warming, autumnal feel to it and is reminiscent of the sort of 'everythings-ok' electronica we used to soothe our worries to post 9/11. Perhaps in these troubled times Wiesenfield's electronic assurances are just as required.
