Behind her amazing release July we find out what music is Making Marissa "Float"
Recorded at Seattle s Avast Studio, July pairs Nadler for the first time with producer Randall Dunn (Earth, Sunn O))), Wolves in the Throne Room). Dunn matches Nadler s darkness by creating a multi-colored sonic palette that infuses new dimensions into her songs. Eyvind Kang s strings, Steve Moore s synths, and Phil Wandscher s guitar lines escalate the whole affair to a panoramic level of beautiful, eerie wonder.
July is the kind of release that reminds you why NPR counts Nadler s songwriting as so "revered among an assortment of tastemakers. " This is a singular achievement for the artist, a record she couldn t have made earlier in her career because, as every songwriter knows, she didn t just write these songs: She lived them.
