There are some incredible solo artists around at the moment, maybe it's the ever increasing costs of touring driving songwriters to doing it alone, or maybe the time is right for some quieter, more thoughtful music. Nina Nastasia's second release is a sad album, traversing through subjects such as loss, love and longing, but beautifully and hauntingly. You hang on to every lyric, every hook, and fortunately with only two tracks over three minutes you are captivated for twelve wonderful moments.
