Weyes Blood announces Sub Pop debut

Sub Pop signs Weyes Blood
Weyes Blood

Today, Sub Pop has announced the signing of singer/songwriter Weyes Blood aka Natalie Mering. “We’ve been longtime fans of the Los Angeles-based musician/singer’s work, from her four releases for Mexican Summer, as well as her collaborations with Ariel Pink, Perfume Genius, and Drugdealer. Weyes Blood’s most recent release Front Row Seat To Earth, is available via Mexican Summer.

Weyes Blood, recently released her new 7” single via Mexican Summer. The single featuring covers of Soft Machine’s “A Certain Kind” and Fred Neil’s song “Everybody’s Talkin”. “Everybody’s Talkin’” b/w “A Certain Kind” is a capsule of Mering’s care for those artists and songs that have influenced her.

Weyes Blood will also act as direct support on Father John Misty’s forthcoming North American and European fall tour. The trek begins September 18th with a show at Toronto’s Massey Hall and ends November 20th at Lisbon’s Coliseu dos Recreios. Along the way, she’ll play one-offs at The Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, Pop Montreal and Joshua Tree’s Desert Daze.

Natalie Mering aka Weyes Blood has released three full-length albums, a couple EPs, and has collaborated with such acts as Ariel Pink, Drugdealer and Perfume Genius. Mering’s entire output thus far has been an exercise in exploring the atemporal. She is a musician and a singer, after all, but the particular process of Weyes Blood’s development and Mering’s experimentation, with everything from her early days of local-noise-scene strangeness, to her present mastery of timeless balladry highlight her as a meticulous sonic alchemist.
