Baths (Anticon/USA) – New Zealand Tour

Baths (Anticon/USA) – New Zealand Tour

After suffering serious stomach complications back in 2011 forcing us to cancel his debut show we are pleased to announce Baths will be returning to New Zealand to play two shows in Auckland and Wellington this November!

Wednesday 14th November @ Whammy Bar in Auckland
Thursday 15th November @ San Francisco Bath House in Wellington
With special guest: Black City Lights

An exercise in stargazing synthetics, stumbling rhythmic thuds, incidental found sound, and ghostly falsetto voice, Baths is the musical project of American electronic musician Will Wiesenfeld.

A key member of the new wave of Anticon Records artists, Baths filters rugged MPC hip-hop production techniques through a chillwave filter. Baths musical oeuvre connects him with both contemporary sound surfers Toro Y Moi and Washed Out, and the modern international beat movement which has given us Flying Lotus, Hype Williams, Samiyam and their ilk.

Described by The Guardians Paul Lester as like, J Dilla playing around with the Pavement and Prince catalogues, a Baths performance is a decadent sonic treat. In line with this, his debut album Cerulean got the coveted Pitchfork.com co-sign with an honorable mention on the 2010 Album of the Year list, and more recent sophomore release Pop Music / False B-Sides is also headed for equal acclaim.

Tickets are available from www.undertheradar.co.nz, Slow Boat Records or Rough Peel Music in Wellington and Real Groovy in Auckland.

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which won the Non Fiction Award at the Montana New Zealand Book Awards in 2009, and has now been republished by Te Papa press.

Howard Davis: The Back of the Painting

Painting conservators are the forensic pathologists of the art world. While they cannot bring their subjects back to life, they do provide fascinating insights into the precise circumstances of a painting's creation, its material authenticity, and constructive methodology. More>>


Howard Davis: Black Panthers on the Prowl

A passionate and gripping political drama from Shaka King, this is an informative and instructive tale of human frailty that centers around the charismatic Chicago Black Panther leader Fred Hampton, who was murdered at the age of twenty-one during a police raid. More>>

Howard Davis: Controlling the High Ground

Stephen Johnson's raw and angry film not only poses important questions with scrupulous authenticity, but also provides a timely reminder of the genocidal consequences of casual bigotry and xenophobia. More>>

Howard Davis: Dryzabone - Robert Conolly's The Dry

After the terrible devastation caused by last year’s bushfires, which prompted hundreds of Australians to shelter in the ocean to escape incineration and destroyed uncountable amounts of wildlife, The Dry has been released during a totally different kind of dry spell. More>>


Howard Davis: Hit the Road, Jack - Chloé Zhao's Nomadland

Nomadland is perhaps the ultimately 'road' movie as it follows a group of dispossessed and disenfranchised vagabonds who find a form of communal refuge in camp sites and trailer parks after the economic contraction of 2008. More>>
