Marissa Nadler & James Vincent McMorrow @ Hideout — 9/15/11

“Before her last song of the evening, “All Love Must Die,” a song “about being a mistress,” Nadler recounted her experience the night before at the airport hotel bar, with the businessmen and escorts. In the song, Nadler sings, “I spent the summer breathing in the scent of your arms again/ But I was not your woman those times,” and concludes, “I’d rather be your mistress than your nobody.” To write so vividly about being a mistress surely isn’t a simple gift. And whether Nadler draws on real or imagined experiences in her songs, her characters always seem to come to life in a way that only Appalachian folk stories, passed down and adapted through generations, can.

For the small number of the crowd who made their way to the back room for Nadler’s performance, it would have appeared that James Vincent McMorrow had a tough act to follow, on the eighth day of his first headlining tour in the U.S. But it wasn’t so, as the front bar emptied out, and the back room swelled as he and his five-piece band took the stage.” [Gaper’s Block]
