Boston-based songstress Marissa Nadler’s Americana-inflected tunes are the perfect soundtrack for a dusty, haunted, economically depressed summer (as well suited to the 1930s as to today). And so it is with great joy that I write you about the June 14 release of the lady’s new LP, a self-titled little number on her brand-new record label, Box of Cedar Records. Nadler is teaming up with producer Brian McTear (Matt Pond PA, Danielson) for this, her fifth full-length.
The self-titled album will be Nadler’s first release on Box of Cedar after two successful albums on Kemado. One of these, 2007’s Songs III: Bird on the Water (TMT Review) was nominated for the 2008 Plug Awards in the “Best Female Artist of the Year” and “Best American Record of the Year” categories. Fun fact: her songwriting skills inspired the name for the Mexican Summer label.
