B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 5 JUNE 2010

NY-based singer/songwriter Nina Nastasia has finally released her first full-length record in three years, Outlaster (on FatCat Records). Brim full of dark tales, orchestral texture (thanks to arranger/bassist Paul Bryan), excellent instrumentation (especially from drummer/percussionist extraordinaire Jay Bellerose), Nastasia's new effort is a brooding gem.
