By: Spacelab Research Staff Nina Nastasia has announced a set of U.K. tour dates in support of her new album On Leaving. She'll be touring around the country in the second half of November. Once called "astonishing" by John Peel, her music evokes a quiet sense of beauty while still captiviating and filling a room at the same time.
She's so good that even Steve Albini marks her among one his favorites, saying "In the process of making a record, you hear it so many times that the charms of even the best of them can wear off through over-exposure. On rare occasions, records I've worked on have withstood this scrutiny and ended up being personal favourites. Of these, a good handful are beautiful and sublime, and I listen to them for pleasure. Nina Nastasia's 'Dogs' is a record so simultaneously unassuming and grandiose that I can't really describe it, except in terms that would make it (and me) sound silly. Of the couple thousand records I've been involved with, this is one of my favourites, and one that I'm proud to be associated with."
