Album of the Week: And In the Darkness, Hearts Aglow by Weyes Blood

Weyes Blood, And In the Darkness, Hearts Aglow

And In the Darkness, Hearts Aglow is Natalie Mering's 5th release as Weyes Blood, naming her band after the Flannery O'Connor book, Wise Blood.

This album is the 2nd in a trilogy dedicated to the fallout from climate change, which started with her 2019 release, Titanic Rising. Recorded in the same studios in LA where Brian Wilson worked on Pet Sounds, Mering created epic orchestral compositions. The songs were recorded playing together live as much as possible, and feature musician friends like members of the Lemon Twigs, Hand Habits' Meg Duffy, Mary Lattimore and more.
