A while back, Boston-based singer Marissa Nadler sent out a request for assistance to be able to afford recording her new album. Lord Bassington-Bassington, being what one could perhaps describe as a "fan" of Miss Nadler's music, happily signed up to support this worthy cause.
And just a few days ago, the finished result arrived, in the form of a signed LP and extra CD. The new album, simply entitled Marissa Nadler,
is, to put it frankly, quite wonderful. Ghostly sounds for the slowly unfolding summer.
Those of you who didn't run to the rescue of this chanteuse in distress can still get the record from normal channels. However, the LP/CD deal means that Lord Bassington-Bassington has a compact disc to get rid of. Does anybody want to trade?
