God Is in the TV

While there are moments on MIMA where it perhaps loses its way a little ... when her voice is put front-and-centre, the stories have impact and nuance.

Albumism

When considered as part of an evolution, the album’s vague menacing earmarks Mount Airy as Dollanganger’s best, most nuanced work yet.

On Married in Mount Airy Nicole's innate ability to unsettle with her lyrical approach is amplified by some truly sinister instrumentation.

The Line of Best Fit
It's mind-boggling such an unnerving collection of tracks can have your skin crawling before throwing an emotional gut punch. But Dollanganger has always managed to provide sadness in walloping blows, triggering even – this just might be her largest serving yet.

“Married in Mount Airy” is a sparse, ghastly and very well balanced album where the slow dark acoustics and the high, soft innocent vocals of Nicole Dollanganger make for a dreamy escapist folk that tends to carry your mind away.

i respect the vision and the choices but i repeatedly had to restart the album bc i was tuning it out. sounds like if grimes took helium and decided to make the longest 40min album ever
