Despite only having released one record, Baked’s been around the block. The members have close connections to the DIY scene, having worked at Brooklyn’s beloved underground venue Shea Stadium and performed with the likes of Lost Boy ? and Titus Andronicus. It was with 2014’s Debt, however, that the band really began making a name for themselves.
That album was a mindfully crafted collection of songs that eschewed genre restrictions while remaining tightly and confidently Baked. Two years later, it’s clear the now-five-piece hasn’t lost that open-minded edge as they present their sophomore album, Farnham.
The 12-track effort dips into proto-punk (“‘You Know San Francisco, Don’t You?'”), swirling shoegaze (“Stuck at Iron Mountain”), and even outlaw country balladry (“Two-Thousandths”). Sometimes it all happens at once, as on the standout “Stay”. Whatever genre they’re messing around in, though, they do it with an unhurried care that allows the heavy layers of sound to build atop each other without collapsing under the weight. -- Consequence of Sound
