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 […]

Stream – 50FootWave – Bath White

Stream – 50FootWave – Bath White

50 Foot Wave is led by Kristin Hersh of Throwing Muses fame, so its no coincidence that the title track off of their Bath White EP sounds like a love letter to the early 90s (as well as sharks, beaches and occasional Californian brutality).

Review – Marissa Nadler – Strangers

Review – Marissa Nadler – Strangers

With “Strangers”, Marissa Nadler quietly seeks to share the view from her window. The aural landscape of this album slowly reveals broad brushstrokes of grey, overcast skies. The title couldn’t be more appropriate, as I was not acquainted with Marissa prior to this release. Navigating “Strangers” requires neither familiar attachments nor preconceptions. It quite simply […]
