Boomkat Product Review:
We've long been banging on about the loveliness of US singer-songwriter Marissa Nadler, and we've long known that it was only a matter of time before a bigger label picked up on her loveliness. 'Diamond Heart' actually popped up last year as a 7", but now it gets the deluxe treatment from Peacefrog, home of mother's favourite Jose Gonzalez. The track is sounding better than ever, and in a better world I'd chance this as a pop hit - but we know the state of today's charts. without a sync in a well known advert you're likely not to graze the top 100! Still, Marissa always has us, the music buying public, to swoon and pore over her gorgeous olde-English folkiness. The B-Side 'Dying Breed' (also taken from forthcoming album 'Songs III - Birds on the Water') is better still, perfectly representing her immense talents as a songwriter as she conjures up a wavering and breathtakingly gorgeous world of innocence, loss and despair. If this is evidence of the album then it's going to be something truly marvellous! Buy.
