Four and five star reviews all round for the new album from Marissa Nadler
For more than 12 years Marissa Nadler has perfected her own take on the
exquisitely sculpted gothic American songform. On her seventh full-length,
‘Strangers’, released on Bella Union, she has shed any self-imposed
restrictions her earlier albums adhered to, stepped through a looking glass
and created a truly monumental work. Her talent for powerfully juxtaposing
the ominous and the beautiful is on full display.
· Turning her writing to more universal themes, Nadler dives deep into a
surreal, apocalyptic dreamscape. Her lyrics touch upon the loneliness and
despair of the characters that inhabit them. These muses are primal,
fractured, disillusioned, delicate, and alone. They are the unified voice of this
record, the titular ‘Strangers’.
· Once again partnered with producer Randall Dunn, Nadler has created an
album equal in sonic quality to the apocalyptic lyrical tone that covers its 44
minutes. In places her voice and guitar play off subsonic synths, while
elsewhere, a pulsing drumbeat launches the songs off into an intense,
confrontational place.
