Marissa Nadler teasing new album, playing shows (one with serpentwithfeet)
Marissa Nadler is having a busy year as usual. She's been working on the followup to 2016's very good Strangers, and she teased on Instagram that it includes contributions from Sharon Van Etten, Angel Olsen, Kristin Kontrol (aka Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls), and Hole/Upset drummer Patty Schemel. You can see Marissa's posts below. She also digitally released a new compilation of cover songs "to hold y'all over for the new record" and you can stream that below too.
Marissa has two live dates coming up at the moment. One is a show during Provincetown's Twenty Summers Festival on June 1, and the other is The Great Forgotten Garden Party in Yonkers, NY on June 2 at Untermyer Gardens (945 North Broadway). That party also features serpentwithfeet, and here are more details:
For the second year in a row, join Atlas Obscura and the Untermyer Gardens Conservancy to experience the wonder and beauty of Untermyer Gardens. In this enthralling evening filled with exploration and performance, you'll enter a hidden world of wonder and beauty inspired by the gardens' architecture, design, history, and lore.
Attendees will find themselves transported back to the golden years of the Greystone Estate, when Mrs. Minnie Untermyer hosted some of the greatest artists and performers of the early 20th century and Samuel Untermyer roamed the property with a white orchid in his lapel.
At dusk, more stories will be revealed. When Untermyer passed in 1940, the daunting cost of upkeep left his former gardens unmaintained, eventually falling into ruin. Victim to vandalism and overgrowth, by the mid-1970s Untermyer Park had gained a dark reputation as a gathering place for occult activities.
