Weyes Blood Picks: The Stranglers – Don’t Bring Harry


Stellar monotone performance, penetrating subject material. This song is about heroin addiction. I also love the arrangement–a post punk band with a smokin piano player.

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.
