SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 6
As Weyes Blood, twenty-six-year-old Natalie Mering has spent the better part of a decade working at her craft. The Pennsylvania native, who grew up in a strict religious household, listening to church music, told one interviewer that she's been trying to undo that upbringing since age twelve. You can hear her pulling it apart all across her catalog. October's Front Row Seat to Earth—by far her best—explores sacred musical spaces. The vocal harmonies on "Can't Go Home" make the song feel like a hymn, abetted by effects that transform Mering into a one-woman choir singing in a silent chapel. The details of her enchanting work slowly unfold as you listen. Be careful not to miss a moment. Truly and UVB-76 open.
