Marissa Nadler/For My Crimes|
Dream folk with soothing female lead & backing vocals. Introspective, whispery lyrics about love and loss paired with guitar, woodwinds, percussion, and cello give this album a spooky campfire-like feel. On the title track, Marissa roleplays from the perspective of a person on death row, per a challenge given by her husband.
