    Q&A: Weyes Blood discusses her time in Baltimore, Flannery O'Connor, and early 20s disillusionment. See her Sunday at The Crown
    Natalie Mering, aka Weyes Blood, the well-traveled, Pennsylvania-bred, and now Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter, sings like a '60s American folk poet or medieval bard who has seen the 21st century. "What can you do when you're sedated and proved a failure in some man's world?" she laments in 'The Land of Broken Dreams,' the opening track on her latest and second full-length record, "The Innocents." Filled with delicate mandolin- and guitar-plucking, sweeping piano, subtle distortion, raw soprano intonations, and deep layers of choir-like vocals, her crushing ballads and gothic folk songs embody the dread, confusion, and regret of coming into adulthood in the present American dysfunction. We talked over the phone about Tarantula Hill, Flannery O'Connor, and early 20s disillusionment ahead of Mering's Jan. 11 show at The Crown with Fountain of Youth, Nerftoss, and Amanda Schmidt.

    It's Gianna Bitch: Men's rights now!
    Feminism is taking over the world and it must be stopped. In the feminists’ ruthless conquest for power, the rights and voices of men are being ignored and stepped on with sharpened stilettos like a pile of dog poop. With Beyonce standing in front...
