Editors’ Notes

It’s taken this otherworldly singer/songwriter six albums to find herself at the center of the songs. Perhaps it isn’t her failed love she sings of throughout July, but that’s highly doubtful given the intimacy shared here; her lyrics previously shied from telling us anything too concrete. The production by Randall Dunn, whose previous credits include doom-drone-metal gods Earth and Sunn O))), focuses on Nadler’s vocals and works the instrumentation from there. Heavy reverb continues to envelop her every note, but Eyvind Kang’s strings, Steve Moore’s synths, and Phil Wandscher’s supportive guitars never intrude with the conversation she’s having with her ex-lover. Songs such as “Drive” and “1923” maintain a placid front, with the stirring “Dead City Emily” and “Was It a Dream” cranking up the intensity with multi-tracked vocals that battle one another, like sirens fighting for their song. Gentle fingerpicked guitars lure one into the cauldron of “Desire.” Like a chamber-folk mass intended as the final conflagration, July hits fever pitch (“Anyone Else”) before settling into “Nothing in My Heart,” where only time will tell what truly remains.

Customer Reviews

truly unique

haunting voice and lyrics, truly one that will live in ears for hundreds of years

I want you to know how much I love Marissa and her music.

Her new album seriously is better music than you're listening to right now. You really can't beat her music with other static vibrating sounds whirling in your ear drums. Her voice will mesmerize you if you let it, and if you allow her words and the melodies to sink in you'll probably cry, because her music is that good. But hey don't take my word for it, listen to it yourself. Her finger picking guitar melodies and angelic voice, multiplied by sheer beauty and sinister songwriting style creates and ambiance of dream world spirit, and I couldn't have asked her to do a better job, and I'm astounded that I haven't found this artist earlier on in my life. This sound is something you won't find anywhere else and it rests with her. I bought it on vinyl off Sacred Bones and I suggest you support her because she's going to be a really important figure in music for the future. Love you Marissa!

Instant Classic

This record combines lots of different influences and styles in true 'rock n roll' fashion. If you are familiar with this artist you should buy her best record yet released. For those new to Marissa this record is a perfect introduction and the instrumentation is amazing on this one. Accompanying her always perfect multi tracked vocal harmonies are pedal steel guitar, cello, viola, keyboard, and electric guitar in addition to her 12 and 6 string stylings sans guitar pick. This is real music, played in bars, not corporate schlock and the artist has been quietly building a catalog of classic records for the past decade. This record is not to be missed and if you reward it with multiple listenings you'll be back looking for the prior releases.
