Top Acoustic Tracks From the First Half of 2014
Acoustically speaking, 2014 has already been a year rife with innovation.
2. Marissa Nadler- “Dead City Emily”
I listened to this song almost daily while immersing myself in the various novels I read for my dystopian literature class.
That sort of reading material, coupled with the chilling New England winter, went hand in hand with “Dead City Emily.”
This song’s central riff manages to be gorgeous, unsettling and richly technical all at once.
The track sounds like it should be in the “Game Of Thrones” soundtrack, or scoring some other tragic, medieval tale filled with death and despair.
It may not exactly be something you want to put on the stereo during your summer barbecue, but as a deeply personal, vibrant, acoustic examination of a darker character, its absolutely beautiful.
