Released to critical acclaim, Marissa Nadler’s third album, Songs III: Bird on the Water, is a record which sees the her begin to expand her sonic palette. Joined by folk-cum-psychedelic rock outfit Espers on a few of the tracks (the album was produced by founding member Greg Weeks), her sound is augmented with hints of synth, electric guitar, cello, percussion and harp. For the first time she really begins to truly channel the American gothic vibes that she’d be tagged with for years, and the results are pretty interesting.
As it turns out, her back catalogue was much bigger than Mark initially realised, so with that in mind we give as much of discography a going over as we can, bar the odd bandcamp only release. The results are mixed, with split opinion amongst the troops about Nadler’s oeuvre.
So what do you think? Is this an unsung classic or is it just a wee bit meh? Vote on Twitter below.
