by The Alchemist
The haunting, a capella arrangement of Alecia Renece’s version of “Baby I Need Your Loving,” appears on her 2020 EP, Play, Vol. 1. The chorus of this Holland–Dozier–Holland classic made famous by The Four Tops is the foundation for complex vocal harmonies interwoven in such a way that you don’t realize until the end of the track that there isn’t a single instrument. The vocal arrangement stands on its own with vulnerability and longing… “Baby, I need your loving. Got to have all your loving.”

Queer duo Witch Weather discuss new album and the influence of the DMV on their sound.
Philadelphia-based queer punks Witch Weather have a message for anyone who feels hopeless and worthless: you are not alone. With an irresistible sound that draws from 80’s goth and lo-fi grunge, the indie duo wears their heart on their sleeve, giving voice to complex emotions that many would opt to suppress in the recesses of their minds.
Join Alchemical Records as they connect with Witch Weather to discuss the band’s new self-titled album, their search for a sense of belonging as members of the queer community, the important element that keeps the duo’s creative bond strong, and the influence of the DMV on their sound.
