Lab Overview

Front Row Seat To Earth was Weyes Blood’s second LP for Mexican Summer, a solid step on a long path from the noise and dissonance of her earlier releases to the gilded folk-pop of Titanic Rising. Produced by Chris Cohen and Natalie Mering (Drugdealer, Perfume Genius), this record would sound perfect on 70’s AM radio. “Be Free” is up-front vocals and taut acoustic strums with pitch-perfect brass driving the outtro. “Do You Need My Love” is a Lennon-esque piano ballad, “Generation Why” starts with ethereal vocal treatments but normalizes to reverberating chamber pop, keeping a bit of that Laurie Anderson edge. “Seven Words” features hazy electronic piano in the margins of loud-quiet-loud songwriting, “Away Above” is a callback to her earlier aesthetic, medieval-styled stringed instrumentation and beautiful vocal harmonies. This record is pressed on black vinyl, and includes a printed inner sleeve.
