Different to the sprawling studio affair of her 2014 epic The Innocents, Weyes Blood’s newest foray, Cardamom Times, alters tropes of classicist folk arrangements with echo chambers, flutes, organ, and manipulated tapes to locate ‘timeless romance’ in the face of digital envelopment and urban decay.

Listen to the lovely title track below which has plenty of echoes of classic British folk, even touch of Jethro Tull and in which her mesmerising vocals grip like a vice.

Following the release of her critically acclaimed album The Innocents, Pennsylvanian artist Weyes Blood (aka Natalie Mering) will play two UK shows in February, on Saturday 21st at the Old Blue Last in London (free show), and the day after at the Glad Cafe in Glasgow

To mark the dates, their is a new video for album track Bad Magic directed by conceptual artist Joey Frank and shot using drones. It’s a work of cinematic beauty as Mering is shot from a birds-eye viewpoint, walking along the deserted beaches of The Far Rockaways and The Hamptons in a long black cape.

Watch it here.

Weyes Blood is the work of Natalie Mering, one time member of experimental troupe Jackie-O Motherfucker and guest on Ariel Pink’s Mature Themes.

The sound of Weyes Blood is one of folk (with elements of psych and pop) set against electronics and tape effects, multi-part harmonies, collages and melodic qualities of delay. With vocals, often compared to Nico and of a rare purity and ethereal quality, weaved throughout the songs.

Her album The Innocents is released on 20th October via Mexican Summer and the six minute, haunting, melancholic Some Winters is the latest track to be shared from it.
