Channeling the likes of Karen Carpenter and Aimee Mann, Weyes Blood (Natalie Mering) has been steadily building a fanbase which last saw her here in the Button Factory in 2019.
Pandemic road bump aside, Mering released the second of her trilogy of albums this year, And in the Darkness, Hearts Aglow. There’s a nod to 1970s Laurel Canyon folk-pop in her melodies as she grapples with personal and societal issues of our times. Valentine’s comes two days early in ’23.
