Natalie Mehring’s latest album as Weyes Blood is the second part in a trilogy that began with her fourth album, the elaborately orchestrated alarm call of Titanic Rising. “Everything that was an observation on Titanic Rising had kind of come true,” she told Pitchfork. “I feel like this album sheds light on our disillusionment, and that’s the first step in trying to ride that wave.” Read that feature, “Weyes Blood on What It Means to Be Out of Time,” and check out the Pitchfork Review podcast to hear interviewer Sam Sodomsky discuss the record.
