Marissa Nadler‘s terrific new album Little Hells came out on Tuesday (March 3) on Kemado records and coincidentally, she’s playing a record release show tonight (March 4) at Joe’s Pub.

Marissa recently sat down for an interview with PopTartsSuckToasted and here’s a little excerpt from that exchange:

PTST: We’re a week away from the release of your new record, Little Hells, are you excited to be able to finally get the record out there to the listening public? Is there ever any fears that creep in when you get this close to a release date?
Marissa: I am excited, definitely. Of course there are fears of rejection but you have to take things with a grain of salt. It would be an absurd lie if I said I didn’t care. However, the most important thing is to make art that I am happy with, because at the end of the day that is what matters. To have a vision and see it executed to the best of my abilities and within the confines given is all I can do. I used to get really really torn up about things, but it is too painful to be thin skinned, and therefore I am working hard on trying to toughen up. With the internet these days, it is dangerous territory if you go Googling. The anonymous blogger can say things that they would never say in real life, and they don’t realize there is a human being with feelings behind a record that may or may not be reading what they are writing. I think it is safe to say that it is best to stay away, and work on my future records. I am always thinking of the next record, and next project. I can’t be still for a second (which may surprise people given the mellow music I like to make). I think that is why I write such dreamy music. Therapy. []
