Marissa Nadler Posts Striking Video For New Single Blue Vapor

Tuesday, 07 August 2018 Written by Huw Baines

Marissa Nadler has released a video for her new single.

Blue Vapor is set to feature on ‘For My Crimes', which will be released on September 28 through Sacred Bones and Bella Union, who also put out her 2016 LP 'Strangers'. October dates in Manchester and London will follow, along with European shows and a support run with the Decemberists in the US.

The early stages of the track have a touch of Bruce Springsteen’s solitary ‘Nebraska’ to them, but Nadler’s seamless harmonies with Kristin Kontrol add real warmth to the chorus. The song’s denouement is accompanied by increasingly volatile imagery in director Thomas McMahan’s video, where percussion is added by former Hole drummer Patty Schemel alongside Janel Leppin's strings and sax from Dana Colley.

“Thomas McMahan beautifully articulates the intangible sense of depersonalization depicted in the song,” Nadler said in a statement accompanying the clip. “He makes some heads explode and incinerates everything in sight. He does so beautifully and seamlessly and leaves Blue Vapor a gorgeous monochromatic world to exist in.

“Taking an abstract approach, he utilizes various experimental and mixed media animation techniques, merging the mood and imagery of the song with hallucinatory visuals that make me go ‘wow’ like I wanted to. His videos for Autolux and Drab Majesty, among many others, really stand apart for me in their uniqueness and artfulness. I hope to make more videos with Thomas because he has an amazing ability to transform the mundane into the supernatural.”

Marissa Nadler Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows:

Mon October 29 2018 - MANCHESTER Gullivers
Tue October 30 2018 - LONDON St Matthias Church

Technical And Topical: Black Peaks' Guitarist Joe Gosney Discusses 'All That Divides'
Fri 12 Oct 2018
Music critics are often guilty of presenting rock's history as linear. Progressive rock emerged out of pop music and psychedelia in the late 1960s but was ultimately killed off by punk in the late 1970s, so the narrative goes. Punk, with its raw sound and DIY ethic, was also a better vehicle for voicing social and political issues than prog, which was considered more escapist and lyrically concerned with “high culture”.
Out Of The Shade: Doyle Bramhall II Steps Into The Limelight

There won’t be many musicians with an address book as impressive as Doyle Bramhall II’s. From Elton John and Roger Waters to Sheryl Crow and Alain Toussaint, not to mention his position as Eric Clapton’s right-hand man for nearly two decades, the Texan born singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer has often been the go-to collaborator for some of the greatest names in the business. Such a role inevitably meant putting his own career on hold, but with the release of ‘Shades’ – his second solo album in two years - he’s finally taking centre stage.

But do Chris Farren and Jeff Rosenstock know that Chris Farren and Jeff Rosenstock are friends? “Hey,” Farren says from the stage at Bristol’s Exchange. “If you’re excited for Jeff Rosenstock, let me hear you say...‘CHRIS FARREN!’” When Rosenstock’s guitar packs up mid-set, his attempts to borrow Farren’s are met with silence until a member of his band suggests Tweeting him. Yeah, that’d probably do it, Jeff nods.
Boygenius: The Badass Supergroup We've All Been Waiting For
Wed 10 Oct 2018

Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus were pictured together, draped moodily on a sofa. Looking suspiciously like the sleeve image from Crosby, Stills and Nash’s self-titled bow, the word ‘Boygenius’ ran below them, as well as that all-important stamp of approval from Matador Records. Speculation bubbled. Rumours were whispered.
