Music Friyay: Taleen Kali, Marissa Nadler, Geo Metro, Tim Hecker

Music brings people together. Communities are created and fostered through melodies, which is why it’s important to promote excellent work by musicians both popular and obscure from all over the world, hoping its influence will reach our Brooklyn audiences. As a music lover myself, I’m always searching for new music (regardless of when it was released).

Here are four of my picks for this week:

Marissa Nadler – For My Crimes

Nadler’s album, released in 2018, is a beautiful meditation on healing, grief, and sadness. In a time where the world seems to need some serious healing vibes and energy, this album couldn’t be more timely. It will cut you where it hurts most. My favorite song: “Blue Vapor.”

Taleen Kali – Soul Songs

Kali’s debut album, released in 2018, is a punk rock dance anthem that is perfect to be active to. There is a lot of grit, sorrow, and anger that is well-articulated and felt. Kali, who is an LA-based musician, brings feminist energy into her music in a much-needed way. My favorite song: “Bluets.”

Geo Metro – Ravage 2099

Philly-based band, Geo Metro’s debut album was released in 2017, and is an ambient dreamscape that is eerie and digitally innovative piece that I love working to. My favorite: “Klodi.”

Tim Hecker – Konoyo

Hecker is an old favorite of mine, whose ambient pieces create cinematic, atmospheric moments in compelling ways. Hecker always knows how to deliver and this album, released in 2018, is no different. My favorite: “In mother earth phase.”
