Late last year, Natalie Mering put out the excellent and underrated The Innocents, her second album of art-damaged indie-folk under the name Weyes Blood. We haven’t heard much from her since then, but now she’s announced a new EP, Cardamom Times, and shared its pseudo-title track. Although a few lilting flutes and organ make a late appearance, “Cardamom” strips away some of the gothic theatricality of The Innocents — it’s mostly just Mering’s golden voice and a lovely blanket of finger-picked guitar, all warmth and longing laid bare. Listen.
The Cardamom Times EP is out 10/9 on Mexican Summer.
