Nina Nastasia takes her time on her new single
An obvious standout from this year's Outlaster album, 'You Can Take Your Time' is released as a single on 6th December to co-incide with UK dates. A staple of Nina's live performances for several years, 'You Can Take Your Time' is a lush, sweeping number cast in amongst Outlaster's central theme of perpetuation. Recorded separately from the album sessions and exclusive to this single, the second track, 'One Turned In' is one of Nina's newer songs. Arriving fully formed, it is a voluble demonstration of Nina's incredible ability armed solely with guitar-and-vocal.
Descriptions of Nina's recent works, often put as 'lean', 'sparse', 'delicate', do not capture the spirit of Outlaster. It is work of lush sophistication that, with no loss of distinction or economy, transcends the reach of Nastasia's famed sparseness. The orchestra takes a more formal approach with Paul Bryan's powerfully affecting score, hearkening back to the likes of Gil Evans and the late Phil Ochs. Burnished with lustrous horns and reeds bolstered by a dynamic string ensemble, this record marks a distinct shift as much for her record label as for Nina Nastasia herself.
