#231: Blake Mills, “Mutable Set”

Blake Mills has been over the place over the past few years, including this very setlist (that’s also him on Perfume Genius’ new track). You can find him producing, playing or singing on albums such as Laura Marling’s “Semper Femina”, Dawes’ “We’re All Gonna Die”, Conor Oberst’s “Salutations”, Weyes Blood’s “Titanic Rising”… you know the drill. They’ve all been featured here. After adding some guitar tracks on Cass McCombs’ “Mangy Love” a few years back, he has now invited back the fellow Californian for some collaborative songwriting on his exquisite, brilliant new album, “Mutable Set”.

Plus: brand new tracks by A.O.

#183: Weyes Blood, “Titanic Rising”

It doesn’t take long for the listener to realize Natalie Mering is an artist in her prime while listening to her fourth record as Weyes Blood. While the already remarkable “Front Row Seat to Earth” had its number of high peaks coupled with a couple of less remarkable moments, “Titanic Rising” is a serious contender for album of the year, and definitely a career best for someone we once thought was just Enya for people who order matcha lattes at modern coffee establishments. (Sorry about that.)

Plus new tracks by the likes of Vera Sola, Heather Woods Broderick, Siskiyou, Jake Xerxes FussellPhil Cook, Laura Stevenson, Alex Rex, M. Lockwood Porter, Los Coast, Super DopplerJonah Tolchin, Carl Anderson, Drunken PrayerPUP et al.
