Produktinformationen "Weyes Blood - Cardamom Times"
Weyes Blood (* 11. Juni 1988, bürgerlich Natalie Mering) ist eine amerikanische Indie-Folkmusikerin. Mering stammt aus Santa Monica (Kalifornien). Seit 2006 ist sie im Bereich Undergroundmusik tätig. Sie war erst Bassistin des Musikerkollektivs Jackie-O-Motherfucker und arbeitete mit Ariel Pink zusammen. 2011 veröffentlichte sie ihr Debütalbum The Outside Room. Ihren Durchbruch hatte sie 2019 mit dem dritten Album Titanic Rising, das in die offiziellen britischen Charts und auf Platz 6 der US-Independent-Charts kam.

Cardamom Times was recorded onto reel-to-reel tape at Mering's home studio in Rockaway Beach, New York. Like the area, which itself has recently been devastated by natural causes and is regaining it's bearings, Mering has created a language of dystopian love. A place where hurt, comfort, past, and future are finding themselves together, not necessarily out of mutual affection, but because this is the way things are.'

As with her past recordings, these songs echo her flirtatiousness with the classics and of the avant-garde, channeling the domestic hymns of Sybille Baer through the lens of Baltimore's recent experimentalism, the devotional drones of Terry Riley accompanied by the voices of the Sacre Coeur, the confrontational words of Anais Nin along with the warm embrace of St. Augustine. Mering's search for true, timeless love, is accompanied by her caravan of ancestors who channel through her like spectres caught on magnetic tape.

Using DIY recording techniques with a horde of equipment, Cardamom Times alters tropes of classicist folk arrangements with echo chambers, flutes, keyboards, and manipulated tapes. On Take You There she performs a stark and deep call of longing over minimalist organ, on Cardamom a secret infatuation is addressed through delicate guitar playing and flute. The instruments are both vintage and contemporary, piercing and soothing.
