Album Review: The Path of the Clouds by Marissa Nadler

Excellent, Based on 3 Critics

Could be her best. The Path of the Clouds begins in 1928 on the Colorado River in a handmade canoe. How and why we arrive at this place/time can be explained by Marissa Nadler's childhood obsession with the Unsolved Mysteries series; a television show which began in 1987 and was centered around unexplained disappearances. She binge-watched reruns of the show during 2020's pandemic lockdown, which combined with her own unique isolation (which felt like a disappearance in its own right) inspired her haunting and mesmeric tenth LP.
