While Dagdrøm is undoubtedly a Nadja album, with its ethereal, swirling guitars and its plodding rhythms like an elephant traversing the savannah, the album also showcases several points of growth for the band. The most obvious change to Nadja's sound is the addition of live drums courtesy of Mac McNeilly of The Jesus Lizard. On previous albums, Nadja had used a drum machine, which worked well enough for their purposes, but McNeilly's drumming adds an entirely new dimension to the sound
But yeah, big riffs, live drums (fucken YES) and very catchy songwriting. Dagdrom's a rather hard album to classify; there'll be a few straight out forward doom riffs (One Sense Alone, what a huge, crushing ending!) and then a chorus will come along that sounds a lot like, I dunno, Sonic Youth or something (readers must excuse my general ignorance about most experimental/noisy rock), and is as un-metal as it can.

Though by Nadja's standards, Dagdrøm starts off unusually serene. You don't so much throw on a Nadja album as dunk your head in one; the smoggy haze of fuzz and scuzz that permeates the Berlin-based doom-gaze duo's albums is so relentless and all-consuming that, after a while, it starts to feel as comforting and commonplace as oxygen. But something remarkable happens at the beginning of Nadja's new album, and that is: nothing at all.
