The Artist/Album: Nadja, Dagdrom (Broken Spine Productions, October 30th)
Why It’s Worth the Wait: If mumblecore was a type of music–as opposed to an overhyped film ‘movement’, circa 2005–it’d have quite the advocate in this corner, Aidan Baker and Leah Buckareff’s first drone-on disc in forever. (Or two years in Nadja time.) They’re joined by a live drummer here–none other than the Jesus Lizard’s Mac McNeilly, which lends a level of red-blooded noise rock to the proceedings. A welcome addition obviously.
