Weyes Blood Picks: Ween – Freedom of 76


Ween is from where I’m from, and this video has all the local flavor you could ever wish for. This is a song for the city of brotherly love, and in encapsulates the soul there. Philadelphia is a true underdog city so any song dedicated to it I can get down with.

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.
