I've posted on Marissa Nadler before, but as regular readers of this blog can attest, I have a penchant for posting numerous times on artists I'm especially fond of. Well you can add Marissa Nadler to the list of those who can do no wrong in my book.
I've been listening a lot lately to her 2005 album, The Saga of Mayflower May, but it's this live track that really gets me. She has the voice of an angel; or is it a ghost? Equally enchanting and haunting; I can't get enough, especially when it's cold and dark outside.

Luckily (for me), Marissa will perform in Austin on March 17 at the Central Presbyterian Church, which seems like the ideal venue for her.
be Marissa's friend, and see if she's coming to your town

Garrison Reid sits down w/ Josh from Tapes 'n Tapes on the latest Indie Interviews podcast. They discuss The Loon, touring, and how blogs have contributed to the band's success. Definitely worth a listen, and not just because Josh mentions the gorilla vs. bear showcase.
