B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5, SAT., 10 DEC. 2011

Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Marissa Nadler released her fifth release, Marissa Nadler, on her own Box of Cedar label. And, it's an amazing sleeper. Produced and engineered by Brian McTear, who runs the Philly-based Miner Street/Cycle Sound Recordings, where Sharon Van Etten recorded her breakthrough record epic. Nadler's songs are nuanced, with a gorgeous sound that compliments her voice and song with simple perfection. Hence, Ms. Adler's recent record snuck into my "Best of 2011" list.
