Interview: Eschewing business of music, Marissa Nadler soars with ‘July’

The last few years has seen a surge of musicians leaving labels to self-release albums. The frequent arguments against label partnerships have included more freedom of artistic expression, no hassle from suits and the ability to keep 100 percent of the profits. Folk singer and guitarist Marissa Nadler counted herself among that crowd of musicians. The 32-year-old Massachusetts native released her previous two projects, 2011’s self-titled album and 2012’s The Sister EP, on her own label. Nadler had been dropped by Kemado Records after the release of her fourth album, 2009’s Little Hells. With the help of a Kickstarter [...]

Mark Kozelek, Marissa Nadler, & more on 826 Valencia benefit album

A slew of indie-rock artists led by Mark Kozelek, Marissa Nadler, and Maps and Atlases have teamed up with 826 Valencia, to create You Be My Heart, a benefit album of songs entirely written by 826 Valencia volunteer Devon Reed. Reed, who tells me his musical performance résumé consists primarily of "occasional busking on the streets of San Francisco for $2 an hour," had taken on a similar project several years ago with the soundtrack for his film The Bigtop. With the help of "lots of emails," Reed pulled together an impressive roster of artists he enjoys, let them choose [...]

Alela Diane headlines at home @ Rickshaw 10/27

Tuesday night saw a co-headlining bill at The Rickshaw Stop featuring Alela Diane and Marissa Nadler, who are currently on a US tour. When Diane came on it was as if she were playing to a living room of close friends -- her banter possessed genuine and humble tones, as she chuckled at requests for songs she wasn't sure if she remembered. Another tradition Diane can't seem to shy away from is inviting her father to play her homecoming shows. Tom joked about being called down last minute, but lent an organic element to Diane's textured folk traditionals by adding [...]
