“The closeness of this record – how personal, alone, & frank it feels – conceals its aspirations to the outside, to the “Earth” of its title. Weyes Blood harbors devastating weight while also universalizing the strange ways of identity & relationships. These are not typical love songs or protest songs — they are painful, poignant riddles that celebrate the ambiguity of love & affirm the conflict of harmonious life within a disharmonic world.”
