Baths – “Pop Song”

CMJ 2010 breakout Baths issued another reminder that his beat-based bathos comes less from the hip-hop world than many think with the title on this new tune, posted to his Facebook page yesterday. Titular signifier aside it is structurally only tied for the poppiest thing he’s put forth so far (an honor shared with “You’re My Excuse To Travel” or “Hall,” all extended chordal vamps with catchy emotional vocals), but melodically and otherwise it’s the greatest free song in the wake of a great CMJ he’s posted to his Facebook to date. (Superlatives always pair well with extreme qualification.) (This is a good song, though.) Download below, that photo above comes from his set at the Terrorbird showcase at Cake Shop on CMJ Wednesday by Graeme Flegenheimer.
