The big stories from Friday were GnR not embarrassing themselves (quite the contrary), Tame Impala crushing through a fantastic festival set, Thom Yorke’s fun side shining through, Jenny Lewis charming the crowd, FIDLAR bringing the noise and much more. The gallery to follow will feature The Amazons, Houses, FIDLAR, Cherry Glazerr, Palm Springsteen, King Princess, Weyes Blood, Jenny Lewis, Thom Yorke and Tame Impala.
We’re pushing forward to the release of the new Weyes Blood album, furthering my belief that the ladies are killing it this year. Here, we have the new single from Natalie Mering’s project, and not only does the video captivate an audience (as it should), but I like the structure of this track. It kind of opens with this warped, backwards looped electronic moment, opening the way for the guitar and Mering to move into the track. Then there’s this huge swell where to song takes a slightly different turn…only to settle back before the song comes to a close. Front Row Seat to Earth, the new record, should be something to behold; it’s released via Mexican Summer on October 21st.
