Review – Marissa Nadler – Strangers

Review – Marissa Nadler – Strangers

Marissa Nadler’s recent move to ‘Dream-Pop’ A-Lister Simon Raymonde’s esteemed Bella Union label was always an interesting one. Her dedicated fan-base, built up over more than a decade, could be forgiven for worrying that those spine-tinglingly intimate moments of drama and pathos would be lost in translation and in pursuit of an off-the-peg trendiness and […]

Ingenuity. Most of you know exactly what this word means, but what people don’t tell you is that this is exactly what helps fuel the best or the most head-turning in the indie scene: the ability to work with what you have and wind up coming out with something amazing in spite of what you […]
