MARISSA NADLER

It's been over a decade since we first fell in love with the music of Marissa Nadler -- sometime around the moment I first heard her flawless "Diamond Heart", which remains one of my favorite songs of all time -- and I distinctly remember the thrill of discovery every time she'd upload one of her exquisite and still underrated cover songs on myspace.

Ivy Mairi – All Around Me

IVY MAIRI

Thanks to our friend Kieran Adams of Toronto band DIANA for the heads up on this glowing new track that he produced for his Toronto homie Ivy Mairi. "All Around Me" is an airy, soft-focus gem that Ivy says is "a bit of a departure" from her folkier material, and she arrives at a very sweet spot on the pop spectrum, landing somewhere amid the silky, elegantly floating vocals of Jessy Lanza, vintage chillwave (RIP), and DIANA's woozier/dreamier jams...
