Marissa Nadler – The Sun Always Reminds Me of You

This Spring 2011 release called “Marissa Nadler,” will be out next week and its a winner.  Simply put, Ms. Nadler makes beautiful music. Her voice and guitar are soulful and embracing; transcending easy descriptions. This is a hypnotic journey willfully taken hand-in-hand with the artist to vistas both known, forgotten and freshly born as if only for your eyes.  The country flavoured song  “The Sun Always Reminds Me of You,” is a heartbreaker in the same light as  Julee Cruise‘s song “Summer Kisses, Winter Tears,” from the soundtrack “Until The End of the World;” along with her contributions to David Lynch‘s psych-thrillers from the 80’s and 90’s.  

There are enough twists and turns to keep it interesting, but still held together by that voice and a hauntingly seductive musical intimacy.

You can listen to the whole thing till its release below and read a full review here:  First Listen

Marissa Nadler – The Sun Always Reminds Me of You

From NPR.ORG — Since her 2004 debut, Boston’s Marissa Nadler has drawn a big response from a small crowd. Her dreamy, fragile folk songs are revered among an assortment of tastemakers, but they haven’t yet broken through to a larger audience. Her new self-titled album, recorded at the same Philadelphia studio where Sharon Van Etten made last year’s Epic, should help change all that.
