Marissa Nadler - July
Is it snowing where you are? I'm assuming your answer is "yes", because it's snowing everywhere right now. For me, there's currently about 4 inches of snow on the ground and some freezing rain tonight.
There are some albums that lend themselves to listening to them when snow is falling, and this is one of them (in fact, pretty much any album in Nadler's discography fits that description). Absolutely beautiful. Terrific instrumentation, and her voice just seems to float over the music. I have loved her for a long time, and this is probably her best album. Grab it and listen to it before all the snow melts.
Favorite track: "Was it a Dream"
Also a huge fan of the opener, "Drive"
