One-man beatmaker and new Anticon signee Baths certainly knows how to keep things interesting, with tracks ranging from Dilla-like funk to this little summertime glo-fi gem. A nice shuffle is paired with enough noisy little squelches and secondary percussion to keep things interesting on "Hall," but it is perhaps the earworm of a vocal melody that serves as the piece's most winning trait: a soaring falsetto rides beautifully over acoustic guitar samples and synth knob-twists. Imagine the best sort of freak-folk remixed into something beat-heavy and palatable and you just might have "Hall."
