Album 1970 8 Songs. Alternative 1970. Desertshore review: Death and gloom are omnipresent on Nico's very intimate harmonium-infused record and yet its staggering beauty makes it an absolute classic. Nico, especially on Desertshore, adheres to this very definition of gothicism: lingering modal melodies on top of her droning harmonium transport you into the very origins of much of our folklore: death. Her voice is a mist horn with a deep accent and is mixed as to fill a whole space with gloom. Janitor of Lunacy, paralyze my infancy she begins. Released December 1970. Desertshore Tracklist.
