Marissa Nadler, 'Bird on the Water' (Peacefrog)

Bird on the Water
Critical Mass
Label: Peacefrog

by Jason Gross

This Providence painter ditched her brush and transformed herself into a charming neo-folkie, summoning up effortless late-night reveries. Her third album features sweet, gentle vocals matched with lightly plucked guitar and the occasional cello or keyboard. Like any good artiste, Nadler digs strange things like raincoats and graves, but she's most memorable when paying tribute to gal pals: "Silvia" (a muse she finds underwater) and the tragically doomed "Rachel."
