The newest signing to New York-based Kemado Records is no Swedish prog-band or tech-metal outfit. Rather, it’s a woman with an acoustic guitar and lungs of steel–Marissa Nadler. With recent releases on Peacefrog and a cover of Xiu Xiu’s “Clowne Towne” on last year’s Xiu Xiu: Remixed and Covered (5RC), Nadler has earned her place among the Nina Nastasia-esque (albeit way darker) set. Now signed to Kemado, the new face of folk is hitting the road with hype-pop trio Peter Bjorn and John, along with The Clientele, for a taste of the big venue lifestyle. If you like your folk fuzzy and melancholic, Nadler is your girl.

Songs III: Bird On the Water is out now on Kemado.
