Natalie Mering, better known as the principal force behind indie-folk band Weyes Blood, creates music that would probably sound just as home in the ’60s as it does from a stage in 2014.

Earlier this month, Mering played Glasslands and her ethereal voice transported the crowd (or at least this writer) to a time when most likely had never even been born.

We had a chance to catch up with Mering, and she told us about how she came up with her stage name, her feelings about America in the age of the Michael Brown/Eric Garner non-indictments, how she first began playing with Jackie-O Motherfucker and Ariel Pink, and much more.
