Marissa Nadler Expands U.S. Tour with shows in Portland and Seattle
The eighth album from Marissa Nadler, For My Crimes, is the sound of turmoil giving way to truth. Bolstering the intimacy of these songs is the strong feminine energy that defined their recording. Between co-producers Lawrence Rothman’s fluidity with both gender and genre (as heard on his 2017 album The Book of Law), and Justin Raisen’s track record of successful collaborations with strong women (Angel Olsen, Kim Gordon, Charli XCX), Nadler felt empowered to explore without judgement in the studio. With the exception of saxophonist Dana Colley (Morphine), every player on the album is a woman of notable pedigree and distinct style; Angel Olsen, Kristin Kontrol (Dum Dum Girls), and Sharon Van Etten all lend vocals, Mary Lattimore joins on harp, Patty Schemel (Hole) plays drums, experimental multi-instrumentalist Janel Leppin adds gorgeous string arrangements, and Eva Gardner plays additional bass.
Now she comes to the Pacific Northwest, with a show at Portland’s Mississippi Studios on October 18th and a show at Seattle’s Tractor Tavern on October 19th.
