Marissa Nadler – “It’s Easier Now” (Jason Molina Cover)

It's been almost two years since Jason Molina of Songs: Ohia and Magnolia Electric Co. passed away due to organ failure, but since then we've heard a number of tribute covers by his peers and admirers. Marissa Nadler recorded a cover of Molina's song "It's Easier Now" for a new tribute album titled Through TheMore »

Marissa Nadler – “Pitseleh” (Elliott Smith Cover)

Near the beginning of the year, the spectral folk singer Marissa Nadler released a soft glow of an album called July. Today, she's hitting us with Before July, a digital-only EP that includes four demos -- two July songs and two unreleased songs. And it's also got Nadler's atmospheric, vaguely gothy cover of "More »

Marissa Nadler – “Seems So Long Ago, Nancy” (Leonard Cohen Cover)

Spectral folk singer Marissa Nadler is quite vocal about her love of Leonard Cohen. She's covered a few of his songs before, and now she's added her favorite Cohen song, "Seems So Long Ago, Nancy," to that list. It's a pretty straightforward, lo-fi cover, but it's extremely effective, stripping the already spare song to it… More »

Marissa Nadler – “Drive” Video

By sheer coincidence, Stereogum just published a Galaxie 500 feature the same day Marissa Nadler released a video directed by Galaxie member Naomi Yang. Yang combined footage by French artist Bernard Faucon with striking closeups of Nadler to create the visual for "Drive," an eerie, ethereal ballad about life on the road from Nadler'… More »

Marissa Nadler – “Was It A Dream” Video

In Marissa Nadler's video for the spectral folk lullaby "Was It A Dream," we see a man using a film-editing machine to rediscover some ancient bits of silent movie. And on that old film, we see Nadler lurking like a ghost. The video itself is made to look like some old horror movie, like… More »

Stream Marissa Nadler July

There's been a lot of talk about how Marissa Nadler's new album, July, shows the Boston-based songwriter at her darkest. But that's not too surprising when you think about what last year was like for Nadler: She opened for Swans, signed to Sacred Bones, and dropped the creepily beautiful "Dead City Emily." It get… More »

Marissa Nadler – “Dead City Emily” Video

"Dead City Emily" was the first thing we heard from Marissa Nadler's forthcoming July, and now it's the first thing we see. Directors Derrick Belcham and Emily Terndrup concocted shadowy visuals to match Nadler's eerie balladry, turning her and Austin Tyson loose on a modern dance routine that evokes what Snoop Dogg might call… More »

Marissa Nadler – “Was It A Dream”

The dark, mesmeric folk singer Marissa Nadler will release her new album July in a few weeks, and we've already posted the first single "Dead City Emily." "Was It A Dream," the second song she's shared, starts out as a quiet, minimal songs, but then it piles on gauzy dream-pop effects and psych-rock guitar… More »

Marissa Nadler – “Dead City Emily”

Spectral folkie Marissa Nadler's been busy lately paying tribute to Elliott Smith and collaborating with Emily Jane White and eerily covering the Lemonheads, but not so busy that she couldn't find time to make a new album. Nadler's next LP is called July, which is causing some cognitive dissonance this morning because… More »

Emily Jane White – “Faster Than The Devil” (Feat. Marissa Nadler)

Emily Jane White is a California singer-songwriter who makes cold, still, melancholic folk-influenced music, and she'll release her new album Blood/Lines next month. On the song "Faster Than The Devil," she recruits kindred spirit Marissa Nadler to make a windblown, meditative hymn of a song. It's gorgeous, and you can hear it below. More »

Musicians Pay Tribute To Elliott Smith, Who Died 10 Years Ago Today

There are lots of words to toss around when Elliott Smith comes up -- brilliant, troubled, influential, tragic, one-of-a-kind -- each of which fit the music as much as the man. But if pressed for a single descriptor, I'd choose fragile. More »

Angel Olsen & Marissa Nadler – “Frisco Depot” (Mickey Newbury Cover)

Angel Olsen and Marissa Nadler both make gorgeously spare and withdrawn folk music, often on their own. But now they've joined forces, for no apparent reason beyond it being a good thing to do, to cover "Frisco Depot," a 1971 song from the country-folk cult figure Mickey Newbury. The song is great, their voice… More »

Hear Marissa Nadler’s Cover Of The Game Of Thrones Theme

Game Of Thrones makes its triumphant return to HBO on Sunday night, and I am so amped. So, it would seem, is spectral folk singer-songwriter Marissa Nadler, who likes the show's awesome wordless theme music so much that she recorded her own haunted a capella version of it. Nadler's take, produced by Hallelujah The… More »

Marissa Nadler – “Apostle”

This month, folk hypnotist Marissa Nadler -- whose best work magically feels ethereal and earthen at the same time -- returns with a self-released full-length to follow-up last year's self-released, self-titled set. It's called The Sister, with this MP3 from it dubbed "Apostle," and it will wrap you up in its fingerpicked, painterly gaze… More »

Marissa Nadler – “In Your Lair, Bear” Video

Here's something about singer-songwriter Marissa Nadler that nobody ever mentions for some reason: She is a stone cold fox. That foxiness is very much in evidence in her video for "In Your Lair, Bear," the opening track from her self-titled 2011 album. The entire clip consists of soft-focus shots of Nadler swanning around a house. More »
