Folk Synth

Artist: 
Ariel Pink & Weyes Blood
Label: 
Mexican Summer

Being a huge fan of both of these artists, I was excited to hear this collaboration. Weyes Blood has one of my favorite voices in music right now and has worked with Ariel Pink a little bit in the past. Weyes Blood really has a voice reminiscent of artists like Karen Carpenter and others folk artists from the 60s and 70s. In this record her voice even more haunting then normal. This short four track EP is a little more on the folk synth side, a similar sound to some 80s post punk bands. The first track "Tears on Fire" is definitely a standout from the EP with the best hook.
