Graaf, this was the first album of Marissa that I listened. I read in an Interview that this "Mayflower May" character is one of her Alter Ego's and this album is one of the brillant work of this genious girl! Her work with the 12 string guitar is just AMAZING!

Thank you for the warning. A Modern and old fashioned at the same time album. Marissa Nadler’s voice is haunting and mysterious. The songwriting is engaging with melancholic and bold lyrics. Marissa shows good music skill too varying through a range of instruments like 6-12 strings, banjo, ukulele, oud (?) with a predominant fingerstyle. The work is graced by Nick Castro’s light and invisible touch. A bold and intriguing album.
