For My Crimes

Album by Marissa Nadler

Following the release of 2016’s acclaimed Strangers, Boston-based musician and fine artist Marissa Nadler returns with her eighth album For My Crimes. Featuring cameos by Angel Olsen and Sharon Van Etten, the album stares down the dark realization that love may not be enough to keep two people together through distance and differing needs. Despite having demoed more songs than she needed, Nadler wrote many of the album’s singles in a flurry of creativity a week before recording in Laurel Canyon, California. The result is some of the most indelible music of Nadler’s career. (Sacred Bones & Bella Union)
