It’s no secret I’m a fan of singer-songwriter Marissa Nadler. While her solo work is exquisite, he choice of covers is always fantastic, showcased below by her selection of songs by Radiohead, Tom Petty and Duran Duran.

marissa nadler covers bruce springsteen’s “the river” and clinic’s “distortions” – both songs are just exquisite. of the songs she says they are “part of a 13 song Covers Volume II. These covers records aren’t part of my official discography but are collections I like to make to cover songs of artists I revere. This song song features harmonies from Faces On Film and Red Heroine, both from Boston. I will be making this collection available on the second week of November as a handmade on ETSY. (after I get finished with this new LP). Love! Happy Halloween.”

Boston singer-songwriter Marissa Nadler recorded her new album in Philly with Brian McTear at Miner Street Recordings. Nadler, who raised the funds to record her album with a very successful fan funded Kickstarter campaign, has made her best album yet. The acclaimed musician, whose last album was released in 2009 to excellent reviews is planning on self-releasing her new self-titled album soon. Below is a gorgeous new song that summons the spirits of Roy Orbison and the more ambient side of Pink Floyd’s pulsing vibes.
