    I'm so happy she's releasing a new album. She has such a powerful voice. I wish she would blow up.

            9. Weyes Blood: Titanic Rising

            Titanic Rising is vintage-sounding music for people who don’t want to live in the past. On her fourth album as Weyes Blood, L.A. singer-songwriter Natalie Mering coos laughably old-fashioned lines like “treat me right, I’m still a good man’s daughter” while referencing the cosmic loneliness of modern dating. You can parse out the weight, hope, and humor of Mering’s poetry, or you can sit back and let her dulcet tone and excellent taste in George Harrison-esque slide guitar wash over you. But even going the comfortable route, she is constantly disrupting her own ’70s soft rock pastiche with sounds that represent the future—space-age synths, satellites trying to connect. This simultaneous backwards-forwards vantage point leaves Mering well-positioned to consider our current moment—even if she sounds almost nothing like it. –Jillian Mapes

              Andromeda is "28 on Pitchfork's year end song list.

              28. Weyes Blood: “Andromeda”

              In the early weeks of 2019, Natalie Mering shared a subtly disorienting video for “Andromeda,” the first single from Titanic Rising, her masterful fourth album as Weyes Blood. The song itself is all sweeping Laurel Canyon haze: a hook that’s almost entirely pedal steel guitar and a sad, swooning vocal delivery that seems coated in FM static. While her music has felt increasingly connected to classic rock radio, this song—with its analog hum and open road grandeur—signaled a deeper inquiry into what’s so classic about those old standbys. The video, however, looked more like a Y2K-era screensaver on a desktop computer: a steady, slightly pixelated flow of distant stars in an endless black sky. This melding of our recent and distant pasts is crucial to Mering’s songwriting; she moves forward by studying where we’ve been, rendering it both familiar and somewhat uncanny. –Sam Sodomsky

                I've tried so many times to get into Weyes, but for some reason she just doesn't click with me. And I love her voice on collaborations she did with Perfume Genius, Father John Misty, Ariel Pink - but her solo songs are just a bit drab for me.
