When: Sun., May 11, 7 p.m. 2014

On The Sister, though, [Marissa] Nadler stays closer to her old stylistic comfort zone, draping her gossamer-fine, luxuriant singing on a backbone of stately acoustic guitar while drums, keyboards, and cello put some flesh on the skeletal songs. Nadler challenges herself as a lyricist on the new album, though, moving away from her usual meditations on romance and private travails to observe other people. “Christine,” for instance, is about the drug-fueled decline of a friend, and “Constantine” describes a ruined rock star shut away in his limousine. —Peter Margasak, 2013
