The Outside Room - Weyes Blood and the Dark Juices [2011]

Jackie-O siren provenance and title suggest Weyes Blood / Bluhd is for busting some outsider freak zone moves. Well, all that and more as withal Ms. Weyes has gone and produced arguably the unprettiest feminine album since Nico's Desert Shore. Shades of Ms. Päffgen's beloved "Jeem" prowl from the get go on Storms That Breed's steamy Manzarek carnival organ swirls. Dunno who Dark Juices are perxackly but they make latterly Bad Seeds sound like sissy boys. Thereafter, it's all creaking ambient melody droning death folk lament. Mesmerizing and swooning like heavily narcotized Cocteaus / Galaxie 500. Classy, subtle and haunted.
