Weyes Blood announces North American tour, featuring all of your favorite presidential summonings

Haunting my butt. Even if the name of Weyes Blood’s newest album does (unintentionally, as it turns out) take from a 1961 film explicitly having to do with hauntings, I personally didn’t get that impression at all listening to the LP just now — as the floor beneath me opened up to a wormhole-like space, and Teddy Roosevelt grabbed my hands for a 45-minute session of circular dancing. The admirable bear hunter also relayed information from a recent interview, where Natalie Mering elaborates on “innocents” as people of a certain age having hopes or expectations that are possibly naive. You think you deserve an unlimited supply of bubble wrap!? Wrong. The popping must be distributed evenly amongst the population.

You think you deserve a stellar performance from Weyes Blood and a full band accompanying her!? Well, who am I to serve as dream-crusher? Check the dates below. Western half of the continent: you’ll sadly have to wait for that in-person inducement of folk nostalgia.
