    cassettes Top 10 MP3s of the Week (4/26)

    The top mp3s have gone through many incarnations since the beginning of Consequence of Sound in 2007. What used to be an exhaustive roundup of all the singles, remixes, covers, and undiscovered gems emailed to us any given week evolved into a compilation whittled down to our 10 favorite new songs. For 2013, we’re again changing up the format with the hope of giving our selections some added weight. We’re still posting about our 10 favorite songs, but they’ll be ordered in quality from 10-1. Who takes home #1 this week? You’ll have to click ‘Next’ to find out.

    10. Baths – “Ironworks”

    bathworks Top 10 MP3s of the Week (4/26)

    Will Wiesenfeld (who records under the moniker Baths) can carry a haunting melody in addition to cutting some seriously violent drum loops, “Ironworks” being a prime example. After a stark piano intro, Wiesenfeld begins methodically layering texture upon texture, starting with the aforementioned percussion. The instrumentation quivers anxiously, uncertain. In contrast, Wiesenfeld’s falsetto has never sounded so confident. After lead single “Miasma Sky”, “Ironworks” is the second track from Baths’ forthcoming LP, Obsidian. -Jon Hadusek
