Nadine Carina | Tangerine

I can’t get enough of Swiss musician Nadine Carina. She creates a wide-range of gorgeously transporting music, sometimes focused on an experimental mixing of twee computer noises, found sounds (rainwater, a cat’s meow) and spoken samples, while other songs are more traditional (“Makes Me Feel Good”). She recently posted a short but sweet beat track, “Tangerine”, to her soundcloud page. Honestly, I’m not sure whether it’s new or not. I know it’s not a song from off her most recent four-song EP, the 2013 release “Where I Love”. And it’s not from any of the records of hers that I’ve heard so far. It might be her just messing around, but it is lovely. Usually when I hear a high pitch-altered voice, which sounds like a child, I get a little annoyed by the distortion. (Not sure what that says about me.) But this one-minute beauty works very well. It centers around the opening lyrics, a borrowing from a Henry Wadsworth Longfellow poem, “The Rainy Day”: “Into each life, some rain must fall.” It’s great to hear musicians appropriate other’s work into samples. Longfellow wasn’t the strongest poet. Okay, he was pretty weak. But this track shows you that you can turn something trite into something beautiful in its own right. (The words always remind me of TheThe’s Matt Johnson borrowing the same phrase for his song, “The Nature of Virtue”.) This is a sort of a dual post, because Carina also posted a remix of Tiger Tsunami’s “Waves”, where she adds her own vocals to the track. It’s sublime. Listen below. Also, if you want somewhere else to begin with Carina, to get acquainted with her sound, listen to 2012’s “Storm/Calm”. It’s a beautiful song.
