The lovely Marissa Nadler has just released a new album called Little Hells. With that, she gives us some insight into what she’s been enjoying lately.

  • Tulsa. Carter Tanton is an amazing songwriter, who is following up his debut Tulsa release with a new record which should be out soon. He has a great voice and writes beautiful sincere songs. Until his new record comes out, everyone should get I Was Submerged.
  • Josephine Foster. I met Josephine Foster years ago when I was first starting to tour, and we did my very first tour together. She is one of the most sincere artists I have ever met and writes gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous songs. For me, she transcends categorization. An opera school dropout, I believe she now lives in Spain. I would recommend hunting down her CDr releases or some of her rock operas. Hazel Eyes, I will Lead You is a lovely full length record and great one to start with.
  • James Blackshaw. He is a great guitar player/ minimalist composer. His instrumental pieces encapsulate extreme beauty. O True Believers is a good one to start with.
  • Jesse Sykes and the Sweet Hereafter– One of my favorite singers out there right now. Favorite songs include Dora Lee, Reckless Burning, and the Air is Thin. I recommend as must haves the albums Reckless Burning, and Like, Love, Lust, and the Open Halls of the Soul.
  • Orion Rigel Dommisse – She plays the cello fingerstyle, and writes amazing songs sung in a lovely voice. ¬†She has a new record coming out on Drag City imprint Language of Stone, which is run by Greg Weeks of the Espers. Until that comes out, get All I want from you is sweet.
