Earth into Aether, 2016. Earth into Aether, 2016.
Described as a 19-track collection of "musical postcards" inspired by travel across the United States, Bill Baird's Earth into Aether is a thematic selection of material from across the eclectic musician's post-Sound Team solo output, including that of his quasi-band moniker Sunset. Adhering to themes of travel, arrivals, and departures, it delves into the songwriter's more picturesque terrain while still representing his typical mélange of styles, touching on psychedelic pop, country, and electronica, all under an umbrella of melodic lo-fi.

Bill Baird has been plugging away since the start of this century, as a member of Sound Team, under the Sunset nom de plume, and as a solo artist. His third solo record is a sprawling, expansive thing – 78 minutes long – that’s almost like a psychedelic journey through the day. From a gentle beginning, it slowly builds up momentum, concluding with a trio of sombre instrumentals and a Velvet Undergroundish ballad, Dreams of Sandy, that takes its vocal melody from Big Star’s Kanga-Roo. The Velvets have clearly had a profound influence on Baird: their deep, rich organ sound crops up throughout.
