Nadja’s Aidan Baker and Leah Buckareff are the sort of people who drip gold dust, wishes, and batwings wherever they go. The road before them is paved with pixie dust and glitter, and the sun gives them a thumbs up each morning when they wake up. They’re just that cool. They’re that kind of people. COOL PEOPLE. The Berlin-based Toronto expats make beautiful, droning music together, but on their latest, Dagdrøm (or “daydream” to our non-elf, non-Danish speaking friends), they go full on Big Black/Jesus Lizard.
Which only stands to reason, since the intrepid duo put their drum machine to bed on this one and got Jesus Lizard drummer Mac McNeilly to pound the skins. Baker, it turns out, had toured with Jesus Lizard bass player David Simms a few years ago, got McNeilly’s email from him, and asked if he’d like to play drums on Nadja’s new record. And the rest, as they say, is history. Magical history. Nadja has released records on Alien8, Hydrahead, Southern Records, Robotic Empire, and their own Broken Spine Productions. They’re releasing this one through Ba Da Bing! and Broken Spine come October 30.
