Released:
Label: Not Not Fun
The Outside Room is an idiosyncratic album, even for the label that released it, the stridently eccentric Not Not Fun. Weyes Blood (born Natalie Mering) shares with labelmates such as Sun Araw and Peaking Lights a love for analog-rich sounds all decayed and flooded in reverb. Formally, however, she is a genuine progressive-folk singer and songwriter, one whose surging contralto is clearly inspired by Nico and Bridget St. John. Dense and forlorn, this record demands a lot from its listeners, namely copious amounts of time and attention, yet the rewards are many and, most importantly, profound.
