Marissa Nadler to Release Seventh Album Strangers 20 May 2016
from Sacred Bones and Bella Union
Currently available on iTunes, “Janie in Love” tempts the listener to dwindle longer in love’s thrall. Love – so dependent on time and place – holds the ability to crumble existence. Love, that certain kismet apt to randomly occur to the unsuspecting victim, lulls Janie to the wants of her admirer. Nadler’s chameleon voice lingers on dismay and beautiful chaos.Love’s grip tightens around us all, and the lyrics warn that the self is often warped by love, distorted by attempting to organize passion or direct emotional energies.
Strangers contains twelve tracks, including bonus track “Give Me Your Gun.” Tracks such as “Divers of the Dust,” “Hungry Is the Ghost,” and “Dissolve,” along with the released single, suggest the emotional railroad hazard by those willing to fall victim to love’s torment come out feeling depleted, wrecked.
Touring two locations on the West Coast, Marissa Nadler will appear in Seattle, WA @ The Tractor Tavern on 22 April 2016 and in San Diego, CA @ The Casbah on 26 April 2016. Will be on the watch for further performance date postings.
