Weyes Blood Picks: Roxy Music – Virginia Plain (LIVE TOTP)


So magical to see Brian Eno dressed like a total freak, rocking the headiest synth in a glam rock band. All the elements I’d ever want to see are there, and its great to see how tight they were together. Brian Ferry’s mug is also particularly expressive.

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.
