NatalieMeringColorEx-Jackie-O Motherfucker bass player Natalie Mering (18years old? 19?), from Philadelphia, releases her solo efforts under the Weyes Bluhd moniker. Also known as ‘Nathalie Wiseblood’, hence the name. Raga inspired, drone music in a lovecraftian mood, using guitar strings as basic sound material and sound effects as an instrument. Home-made one string bass stick (see b&w picture) used to produce low bell-like sounds out of an horror movie. The bleak ‘Ballad Of The Broken Skull’ sounds like a classic gothic song. Most tracks have vocals, usually strangely deformed through effect pedals. Track editing and cueing is kept to a minimum in the DIY, abrupt tradition, giving freshness to the music – check the very strange ‘Raga Of The Spine’, for instance. There is even a chance, odd as it might seem, that the album was actually recorded on cassette. This all stems from a creative, inspired mind. Love the track titles. Wonder what she’ll do next.

    All in all it sounds pretty hack

    i am listening to this CD now and if “hack” means “bad” then i disagree with you.

    I know this is forever ago, but what’re chances of a reup?
