Episode 303: Marissa Nadler

11Nov

Eight albums into her career, Marissa Nadler is still discovering aspects of her musical life. For My Crimes finds the Boston-based musician fighting impulses to overthink and overdo. The metaphors and endless layers of music are stripped away for something that cuts even closer to quick.Of course, the ethereal melancholy that has defined much of her work is still present, and the the record finds her singing and picking her way through relationship difficulties and other universal struggles. Nadler’s voice has long been a confident one, but recent life events have found her rethinking her approach to life and art, from leaving a day job to rekindling a love of painting, while leaving other forms of expression behind.  I should note that I, on the other hand, am very clearly losing my voice during this conversation. Apologies in advance.
