Weyes Blood - Seven Words From Front Row Seat To Earth Oct 21 From Mexican Summer Get Front Row Seat To Earth here.

The new Weyes Blood record, Front Row Seat To Earth, is the folk music of the near future. Natalie Mering, the being behind Weyes Blood, embeds her sublime song in a harmonic gauze of arpeggiated piano, acoustic guitar, druggy horns, and outer space electronics. Propulsive, spare drums carry us across the album’s course. There is a faded California beauty to Front Row. A gentle honesty that recalls the finest folk music made on the West Coast of the ‘70s. The hue hangs in the sweet-spooky harmonies, the pulsing sway of the vibrato, and the ecstatic chord resolves.

While there’s highlights and Weyes’s vocals are still gorgeous, most of this album bored me and was a chore going through, which is surprising because how much I thought Titanic Rising was amazing. I've never actually listened to Weyes Blood, despite all the critical acclaim Titanic Rising has been getting. Front Row Seat to Earth is more folky than I imagined, but I enjoyed it more because of it. Some songs are a bit longer than they need to be though.

The vinyl quality is not good. Cleaning repeatedly may improve it- but it's a mediocre pressing at best. Mexican Summer seems to not care much about the quality of their premier products judging from the number of bad pressings I've purchased from this label. Pity- they do a disservice to their signed artists. The music is really good.

Weyes Blood is Natalie Mering, who has been floating around the US counterculture for a while: singing with Ariel Pink, appearing on the unexpectedly lovely Drugdealer album earlier this year and taking a place in the acid folk collective Jackie-O Motherfucker, as well as having a solo career

WEYES BLOOD: I think that Front Row Seat To Earth was recorded in a garage, and in some ways it has that kind of feel, like it’s very stripped down and very much like band practice. I think on Titanic Rising, it’s more a big performance where I got to work with strings and other textures that I haven’t really been able to work with yet. I think anytime anything gets symphonic it just has more frequencies and it feels a lot bigger. WEYES BLOOD: I guess the aesthetic and vision is just to wake people up to the pre-conditions of your psychology. If you’ve been spending time wondering what’s wrong with you, maybe that’s what’s wrong with you. Especially in our western culture where we live, we kind of have an existence where we get clean water, warm water.

That song appears midway through Weyes Blood's Front Row Seat To Earth and reflects the album's carefully calibrated mood of dystopian serenity. Growing up in Pennsylvania, Mering tried to find a place in the male-dominated local hardcore scene, but was told that her feminine softness was unwelcome. She's since found more sympathetic collaborators in Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti and Jackie-O M, and also dismantled that gendered bias in interviews.

Natalie Mering has been creating music under some variation of her Weyes Blood alias since 2006, and on her fourth album, Front Row Seat to Earth, her development from spectral experiments to lushly fantastical balladry was its most stunning yet. Despite nods to ’60s psych-folk and ’70s AM-radio, Mering fully inhabited the calamitous present.

In 2011 she released the album The Outside Room as Weyes Blood And The Dark Juices on Not Not Fun Records. Uncut magazine described the album as "the vibe is devotional and ethereal, but with an edge", while Beatbots found it "an impressive and ambitious album". Literally I had nothing. In 2016, she released her third album Front Row Seat to Earth, on Mexican Summer to critical acclaim, and toured throughout Europe and the States. NPR wrote that the album reexamines "intimacy and idealism in ways that showcase Mering's gift for measuring and mediating heady emotions
