◊ "Recorded at Seattle's Avast Studio, July pairs Nadler for the first time with producer Randall Dunn (Earth, Sunn O))), Wolves in the Throne Room). Dunn matches Nadler's darkness by creating a multi-colored sonic palette that infuses new dimensions into her songs. Eyvind Kang's strings, Steve Moore's synths, and Phil Wandscher's guitar lines escalate the whole affair to a panoramic level of beautiful, eerie wonder. July is the kind of release that reminds you why NPR counts Nadler's songwriting as so "revered among an assortment of tastemakers. " This is a singular achievement for the artist, a record she couldn't have made earlier in her career because, as every songwriter knows, she didn't just write these songs: She lived them." Superbe!

◊ Singing in a mezzo-soprano, the foundation of her songs are her acoustic guitar, often accompanied by a variety of instruments and an ambient reverb-laden production. She has been known to play in open tunings on several songs. Her influences include John Fahey, Robbie Basho, Patti Smith, Fleetwood Mac, Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush, and Leonard Cohen. Other influences include Dirty Three, Sammi Smith, Tammy Wynette, and Townes Van Zandt.
◊ Her voice was described by Pitchfork as "a voice you would follow straight into Hades", and also "textured and angelic, with just a hint of pain captured within her iridescent falsetto." The Boston Globe wrote "She has a voice that, in mythological times, could have lured men to their deaths at sea, an intoxicating soprano drenched in gauzy reverb that hits bell-clear heights, lingers, and tapers off like rings of smoke. ◊ Hardly anyone considers Nadler a folk musician."
◊ She has referenced poets such as Edgar Allan Poe in her music, and she has revealed that the characters and scenarios in her lyrics are often based on her real experiences.
