Weyes Blood - And in the Darkness, Hearts Aglow
100
Holy flux…

Weyes Blood, the performing name of singer-songwriter-producer Natalie Mering, is one of my favorite musicians ever. Her continuously evolving sound has been relentlessly imaginative, whether it's the darker and more dronier qualities of her first two works “Strange Chalices of Seeing” or “The Outside Room”, or the more structured psychedelic folk that defined her mid 2010s output, especially on the back-to-back career highlights that were 2015’s ... read more

More coming soon

EDIT: Ah fuck it, i'm currently sitting on the bathroom floor with one of the worst headaches i've had in a while.

Noice! Mine isn't this one, but it's very close to being number one.

I'm genuinely baffled that the critics are not loving it that much though. They're so confusing sometimes.
