No thread for her so far? Touring the US at the moment and Europe next month. New album The Innocents is sounding pretty great.

love her songs, love her voice, love her overdubs

The Innocents is one of my favorites from 2014, but I hope she keeps doing the more lo-fi psychedelic thing too. I'm a big fan of "Candyboy" from The Outside Room: http://youtu.be/U-zhNVkuxv0

easily the best thing I've discovered so far in my crazed trawl thru everything anyone has nominates for the 2014 polls

the innocents is a truly mesmerising piece of art that deserves to be spoken of decades from now

new record is nice, totally not what i expected, i thought Weyes Blood was a noise band? did i imagine seeing them live in 2011? i think i might be mixing them up with Angels in America. anyway, this record is cool, really lush & detailed production, and i feel like her voice & mitski's voice & angel olsen's voice are all very similar. female baritone? idk

^ Completely. The two released tracks are beautiful. Such haunting, poignant depths to her melodies. Amongst my five favourite currently active singer-songwriters.

Weyes Blood is playing at a tiny tiny loft venue here, it's gonna be super packed and sweaty and nasty, i'm pissed

Does Richard Dawson count? I'll work on the rest. Thanks for the recommend flopson - will definitely listen.

She's playing here in November! We saw her before and it was lovely. Another completely tiny venue over a pub.

tangenttangent, Tuesday, 13 September 2016 14:05 (one year ago) Permalink

it wasn't packed and sweaty because maybe 6 people had turned up to see her, because the english are shit about liking good music or something

Y'all need to check out Circuit des Yeux/Haley Fohr

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Tuesday, 13 September 2016 16:12 (one year ago) Permalink

I thought I recognised the name Circuit des Yeux and I've just found it in my saved music. This new album will definitely be explored. First related artist as U.S. Girls is a huge bonus.

New Weyes Blood out October 21st, just to stay on topic...

Weyes Blood is definitely my favourite new discovery. Enjoy the songs she did on the drugdealer record as well.

Ross, Friday, 23 September 2016 00:07 (one year ago) Permalink

All three advance singles have been INCREDIBLE. Latest one ends with an interpretation of Lay Lady Lay, following up The Outside Room's opening track and it's House Of The Rising Sun riff. Needless to say, it works spectacularly.

She's getting a massive Pitchfork push this time around, which is nice. But will they have the guts to give it 9+?

Ross, Saturday, 15 October 2016 16:33 (one year ago) Permalink

first impression: Seven Words is the best song on this, right? album seems very good, though every song's kinda the same with the trembly organ chords held for a loooong time... very nice sound but i miss some of the more peppy ramshackle buffy-st marie folky stuff like 'hang on'. maybe i'm in a bit of a glum mood and it's not helping

flopson, Saturday, 15 October 2016 21:30 (one year ago) Permalink

I put some we yes blood on last night when my gf's sister and her partner were over for dinner, and at one point when we were returning to the living room from the balcony for a cigarette, i paused and listened closely to catch the melody, and had to wait like 16 bars before I could make any sense of it! and this was the previous album which I've listened to dozens of times! the way the songs are written, with many cycling parts imperfectly overlapping, each cycle very long, it's easy to follow along if you come in at the beginning and follow along, but I really blown away by how difficult it was to reconstruct fro, within.

NOt heard the name pronounced so far, but I take it it's as in Flannery O'Connor/Foetus isn't it?

Have been impressed by what i've heard so far. So probably need to pick a few things up.

Wise Blood was also one of John Huston's last films starring Brad Dourif.

Flopson is otm here - "Seven Words" stands out. This record is a gorgeous homogenous slice of beauty with very few peaks and valleys. I completely relate to the themes of reconciliation and resignation, but this feels more like music to dwell in that than fight it.

Ross, Saturday, 5 November 2016 21:33 (one year ago) Permalink

New album is beautiful! First time hearing them and I think I'm in love.

It is a very impressive record, kinda unique? It's got a lot of rooted folky soul but also melodrama, but also moods that remind me of Enya... really not sure where to place it, but I like it

oh yeah, reminds me of Kate Bush and Shearwater too - the theatricality

In truth this album destabilizes me. I can relate to these lyrics on such a level that it's a sublime. It's a beautiful album.

Ross, Saturday, 26 November 2016 22:05 (one year ago) Permalink

She was amazing live, really amazing, and her band were perfect. Launched into a Soft Machine cover as the encore too. Hackney didn't really know what to make of her, which was a shame.

was inititally turned off by the ariel pink associations & first listen didn't grab me but this has really gotten its hooks in me....quite a beautiful album

not stylistically (not much jazz or r&b in this), but there's some spirit here some sadness that reminds me of laura nyro

It's out and it's good. In fact I prefer some of it to her last album, which was mostly quite down-trodden but beautiful nonetheless. Especially like the callback to Shangri-Las girl group narration on the second track.

Saw them live in SF for Noise Pop. Good god is Natalie Mering's voice is incredible. Well worth checking out if they're nearby.

Are "they" a band now? When I saw Weyes Blood it was just Mering backed by tapes.

they're a really good band, soft machine covers and all (and yeah when I saw 'them' first it was just her)

For lack of a better term she's a part of the A Pink "family" in LA. Shares 5hags with Pink's touring band. Video directed by Pink's girlfriend. Etc

calstars, Sunday, 26 February 2017 18:50 (one year ago) Permalink

Sorry for staring the obvious. Just trying and failing to make the point that she's the band. Like No Joy is Jasmine's, Lansing Dreiden is Jorge's and so on.

calstars, Sunday, 26 February 2017 18:53 (one year ago) Permalink

The further back you go, the noisier her music gets, and the melodies turn medieval. The Outside Room is excellent in a very different way - more like Marissa Nadler collaborating with Demdike Stare.
