Weyes Blood – Bad Magic  From the LP, The Innocents (LP|CD|MP3) The invention of the drone camera may have changed low budget music videos, and, for that matter, low-budget filmmaking forever. A few years ago, you would’ve needed a helicopter to get these scenes of sweeping natural beauty. And for some reason, the shots of Natalie Mering adoringly lifting the drone into the sky just kill me. Weyes Blood’s new album ‘The Innocents’ will be available in LP / CD / Digital formats was released October .

Ocassionally you hear a piece of music that tries to break through those constructs of the norm, and even the most open minded of music nerds have to shift how their ears listen to things to understand what the hell is going on. That’s what I had to do in listening to the music of Natalie Mering, who records under the moniker Weyes Blood.

With her newest album The Innocents, Mering is making something closer to modern day chamber music tinged with an indie rock/folk feel it. It’s eerie, yet beautiful, and its music coming from a vulnerable place, influenced by experimental music of many ages throughout musical history.
