ALBUM REVIEW: Marissa Nadler, Amenra, Cave In – Songs of Townes Van Zandt Vol. III


I’ve been a fan of Townes Van Zandt for some time now after a chance hearing some years ago of ‘Pancho & Lefty’ on a movie or film I’ve long since forgotten the name of. This combined with a love of all things Yob eventually led me to Mike Scheidt’s contribution to Vol. II of this wonderful series of tributes released in 2014 also on Neurot Recordings and My Proud Mountain: needless to say, I was hooked.

Droneflower – Annie Hart: Live at Saint Vitus Bar


Droneflower is the captivating project by indie chanteuse Marissa Nadler and metal legend Stephen Brodsky (Cave In, Mutoid Man, Old Man Gloom). The two of them play off of each other, complimenting their own unique talents to create something natural, unique and beautiful. Their self-titled album came out this spring, just in time for their stunning turn at Roadburn 2019, followed by several strings of tour dates. Droneflower represents nods to some heavy music, with the subtleties art-rock chill greatness, Nadler brings. Their shows, like their album, are formed by a mortar of slick originals and gorgeous, brain-breaking covers such as ‘Estranged’ by Guns N Roses, ‘More Than Words’ by Extreme, and ‘Blood & Tears’ by Danzig, ‘In Spite of Me’ by Morphine and more. Annie Hart, an up and coming artist deserving of a lot more notoriety opened the show at Saint Vitus Bar, in Brooklyn. Photos by Useless Rebel Photography. Continue reading
