Nina Nastasia


YOU can hear that New Yorker Nina Nastasia is a city dweller on Outlaster - although she plays delicate piano-driven folk music, she plays it on a skyscraping scale.
With a overblown vocal quality at times akin to fellow ivory-tinkler Regina Spektor in her full Soviet Kitsch pomp, Outlaster's music matches, drenched in orchestral flourishes.
Her fifth studio album takes a few tracks to get into its stride, but when it gets going, you can hear this is an LP to outlast a lot of her piano-padding peers' less lofty efforts.
