Just when I thought it couldn't get any better than her self-titled sixth album, Boston songstress Marissa Nadler proves that's clearly not the case with her companion to last year's self-titled titled The Sister. On "Apostle", Nadler continues with her airy dreamscapes and her intricate guitar patterns in a great display of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". That's not to say Nadler's a one-trick pony offering up the same thing time and time again. No, with "Apostle", which is noticeably more hopeful and chipper, Nadler adds a new tale among her collection of so many interesting and diverse ones that displays the poignant, poetic lyricism that is certainly Nadler's strong suit. How Marissa Nadler can pumped out what's shaping up to be a devastatingly beautiful set of songs so soon after the endlessly gorgeous Marissa Nadler is beyond me but far be it from me to complain.
