VINYL FORMAT. Those who heard Obsidian last year already understand that Will Wiesenfeld fully shed his influences and delivered a staggering work of graveyard beauty. Comparisons to other artists became null. Always a gifted musician, Wiesenfeld had become a full-fledged artist: a songwriter of uncommon sensitivity, a whimsical and romantic spirit, and a lay-me-gently-down falsetto. Think of his new Anticon EP, Ocean Death, as a companion piece—the Dia De Los Muertos to Obsidian’s Halloween. Its eponymous opening track existed before a single note of 2010’s Cerulean had been recorded. Darker in tone, it was always meant for a sophomore album, but wound up a different cut of gem.

At just five songs and a shade over 20 minutes, the exquisite Ocean Death is not over-thought. Songs were perfected, not embellished.“Ocean Death” reclines in the aquatic seabed, its lyrics at once simple, bleak and celestial. The 3:00 a.m. introspection and heartbeat pulse—reminiscent of Four Tet or Pantha Du Prince—are almost minimal techno, but suffused with maximalist emotion.
