Second Sundays: Weyes Blood & Chop and Quench



Live sets recorded at the November 2014 Second Sundays open house festivities at Pioneer Works in Brooklyn.

Weyes Blood is the mysterious ghost folk project of Natalie Mering, (former member of Jackie-O Motherfucker, Axolotl). Weaving sound textures with delicate folk songs, Weyes Blood is truly bridge music, combining the sonic influences of tape experimentation with the ancient art of song.

Chop & Quench: A band comprised of members of the cast and stage band of FELA! the musical. The musicians are some of the finest in New York, having performed with The Roots, India Arie, Elvis Costello, and many others. As a unit, the band has worked with performers such as Beyonce, Femi Kuti, and Angelique Kidjo. Known for their straightforward performances of classic Fela Kuti compositions, they also write and perform their own works.

Olivier Conan curated this music series for Second Sundays at Pioneer Works.
