WEYES BLOOD
FRONT ROW SEAT TO EARTH
(w/ DOWNLOAD, POSTER)
Mexican Summer
While the style comes straight out of the Laurel Canyon singer songwriters era, Weyes Blood's 70s AM rock sound is rooted in modern instrumentation. There's a somewhat knowing feel to the songs, a wink to the throwback nature, that thoroughly places the slight synths, & electronics that lurk in the background in a position of focus. It's all slightly otherworldly, ethereal... off. On Mexican Summer.

WEYES BLOOD
INNOCENTS
(W/ DOWNLOAD)
Mexican Summer
Natalie Mering has been knocking around the psych scene for some time now. Working with JACKIE-O MOTHERFUCKER, & singing back up with ARIEL PINK, & now with her own project WEYES BLOOD. The music is dark, psychy, entrancing, & bewitching.

WEYES BLOOD
TITANIC RISING (BLACK VINYL)
Sub Pop
It doesn't happen that often but sometimes an artist makes such a major leap forward in their sound that it's almost jarring. That's the case on Natalie Mering's 2019 album under the WEYES BLOOD moniker, "Titanic Rising." Everything is amped up here, the songwriting, the lyrics, the singing & the production. It almost seems like Mering just made the decision, "I'm going to try & make an amazing record" & we think she succeeded. West Coast & Laurel Canyon vibes have always been there but the influences of Cali songwriters like Nilsson, Randy Newman & Van Dyke Parks as well as nods at everything from Carole King to Kate Bush can be heard here. No doubt, this is one of the best records of 2019. RECOMMENDED.
