Another very beautiful record from Marissa Nadler, reviewed yesterday in Blurt.
(Box of Cedar)
A younger sibling to last year's self-titled album, this eight-song EP has a more casual, less fussed over air. Its arrangements are noticeably less dense, its lyrics more down-to-earth, its vocals unadorned. Yet this Sister is no one's plain relative; its simplicity has been polished to too mysterious a sheen. Personal, introspective, yet shot through with an otherworldly melancholy, the EP filters experience through an opalescent lens.
The video was directed by Ryan Walsh, who is the main guy in Hallelujah the Hills...
