US LP pressing. The new album from Nina Nastasia, Outlaster is an achievement of staggering beauty by an artist of pervasive, quiet influence undergoing a sea change in musical form. Though the signposts of Nastasia's sensibility are still present: songwriting impeccable but not fussy, lyrics intelligent and provocative but not overly enamored with their own cleverness, her work continues to startle and intrigue even Nina Nastasia obsessives. Fat Cat. 2010.
