Weyes Blood: Kraftwerk – Radioactivity


Great video where you can actually see the magical drum pad they use–my favorite sequence is watching the thin chopstick like drumsticks change the envelope filter on the drum sound when he scrapes them against the pad.

What do you think?

Weyes Blood (a/k/a Natalie Mering) trafficks in the purest forms of musical expression: the voice, the words, and the music all ring true, as if shuttled in from the realization that there are no absolutes, especially in your mind. “Hang On,” the second track from her new album The Innocents, waltzes across uncertain emotional territory, our narrator affirming her resolve (“I will hang on/When the rains come/And wash away/All I’ve come from”) across a strongly Canterbury-influenced strain of country folk, 12-string guitar strummed with intensity and drums splashing out in the background, akin to the most primal form of expression: elements laid bare, deeply connected to the past, and miles away from anything else you’re likely to hear in music today.
