Marissa Nadler, Wrekmeister Harmonies, Muscle and Marrow (Back Room) 

When: Mon., July 25, 8 p.m. 2016
Price: $13-$15


Marissa Nadler likes it dark. In seven records spread across twelve years, she has perfected her eerie and enchanting American Gothic folk. Strangers, released in May, goes wider and deeper than 2014's superb July; it's layered with sparse string arrangements, languid keyboards, textured ambience, and washes of reverberating electric guitars. The record refines Nadler's exquisitely macabre songs, in which surreal, apocalyptic dreamscapes murmur of medieval places. Her voice is a wraithlike mezzo-soprano that seems to come from the realm of spirits rather than from her body. With its sophisticated nuances, Strangers might be Nadler's most accessible record, but it still lurks in the shadows—that black-and-white balance cements her status as one of today's most intriguing, intelligent singer-songwriters. Experimental collective Wrekmeister Harmonies and atmospheric drone duo Muscle and Marrow open, their rough, ugly physicality providing a hypnotic counterpoint. —Patrick Wall
