nostalgia for nevermore
on 22 September 2014
Sublime gothy-folky gal manages to be a melange of fragile, brittle, sad, delicate, punchy, catchy, eerie...Frequently quivering with an indefinable nostalgia, never merely wispy, perhaps weighted with the wistful, hints of melancholy hanging in the air like mist or fog. Imagine a sad silvery sound, occasionally lingering, acoustic autumnal sounds without overbearing mournful dirges.
Perhaps the musical equivalent of a discarded remnant of a lace bodice or unfettered veil fluttering over the ground, only to be captured with repeated attempts, to reveal a tatter of shroud. Totally original to herself, Marissa Nadler would catch the ear of Poe & his kith and kin...bearing a touch of perhaps a youthful Marianne Faithfull if she took to the laudanum & rode bareback across america upon an ageless black pony...
