desperately seeking Nina Nastasia DOGS.

brian leahy, Wednesday, 22 May 2002 00:00 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

It's due to be repressed and rereleased this summer. Its packaging is unbelievably ornate (and nice) but clearly quite expensive as well. I think only like 500 were ever made. The album itself quite good, but not nearly as good as The Blackened Air (not that you asked).

I saw Nina Nastasia on Valentines Day 2001 and was blown away. I haven't been able to track down the CDversion of "Dogs" at any NYC store or on the web. I've given up trying to find the legit release. If anyone would be willing to burn me a copy, I have stuff to trade. Until then I await the reissue.

Best,

Her collaboration with Jim White (the Dirty Three) is out on May 28th (*) and is called You Follow Me. "Our Discussion" is a remake of the track she did with Boom Bip.

In an experiment of collaboration, songstress Nina
Nastasia and the incomparable percussionist Jim
White have announced the release of their album, You
Follow Me. The album, which will be released on May
28th, 2007, is Nastasia’s second release on Fat Cat
Records.

White – who is best known for his work with the
highly regarded instrumental group Dirty Three as
well as lending his hand to the projects of Will
Oldham, The Boxhead Ensemble, Smog, Nick Cave and PJ
Harvey – thought up the idea of a collaboration
between himself and Nastasia after the recording of
her album, On Leaving, for which he played drums.

The album was recorded with the legendary Steve
Albini at his Electrical Audio studio in Chicago
after White and Nastasia worked together with
musical organizer Kennan Gudjonsson with the process
of fine tuning the album in New York.


(*) officially, that is.

She's no longer coming to ATP according the site.

I can't find her tour dates for April, but The Dirty Three will be at ATP, if this is still correct.

That "Brad Haunts a Party" song is so incredibly sad and pretty. It's the only one of hers I have heard... What are a few tracks I should check out if I like that one?

Ben Boyerrr, Sunday, 15 April 2007 14:01 (ten years ago) Permalink

"Say that I will go" and "Superstar" and all of Road To Ruin is more menacing than the last record, but just as sad and pretty.

she was on blistering form in glasgow last night. this is the 4th time i have seen her and the first time i have seen her play solo. i was quite disappointed when i saw the setup, i thought i would miss jim white, but when she started playing... oh wow. much rawer than before. the rawness is usually lurking there under a fairly demure surface but this time it was all there for us to see. really amazingly great.

Another track appeared on a FatCat sampler not so long back: "You Can Take Your Time" which for me was the highlight of her last Peel Acres session (6 years ago, give or take a few months!) The album version is great, but the live-at-Peel-Acres version was better, for my money at least.

A bit of street-teaming here so forgive me. Today at 5:30 GMT, there's an interview with Nina that I engineered, three live tracks including an untitled new one, it's on Resonance FM, the show is called Arctic Circle.

^^just listened! great stuff! sounds awesome btw, good job engineering.

she is a staggering talent, every performace i've seen or watched on youtube, it's just flawless playing and singing....

also she seems really cool and funny, way less serious than i thought she would be.

jed_, Saturday, 26 May 2012 00:06 (five years ago) Permalink

Thanks guys!

It was a little problematic, the idea of meeting her as I'm a big fan, it could only be a letdown? In truth, NN and Kennan were incredibly gracious and nice to us, we plied them both with whisky and they hung out in the studio and chatted with us and some London friends of theirs for a good while afterwards. I really can't say enough nice things about them. And, of course the added bonus of watching/listening to her perform, well...damn.

MaresNest, Saturday, 26 May 2012 15:49 (five years ago) Permalink

I spoke to her twice after gigs when she was milling around. one feels like one shouldn't say hello and thanks to artists but she was lovely and, i think, even appreciated it. i have to say that the second gig was really special though, maybe my favourite gig ever, in fact.

jed_, Saturday, 26 May 2012 16:28 (five years ago) Permalink

I was lucky enough to see her and Jim white perform as a duo on that tour, what a show

wack nerd zinging in the dead of night (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Saturday, 26 May 2012 16:38 (five years ago) Permalink

her & jim white clanking along is still some sort of transcendent moment in acoustic-guitar-player-presentation, to me, like it was some amazingly novel moment, & record, that demonstrated making something that's more than the sum of its parts. so good.

So how does Outlaster stack up?

Evan, Monday, 22 October 2012 21:41 (five years ago) Permalink

i think it's great....though honestly i have my personal favorites but i think all her albums are of super high quality

terrell sug (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 22 October 2012 21:45 (five years ago) Permalink

I have "Dogs" on socialist records and really like it. Have always been looking for the album with Jim White, and saw Outlaster on vinyl recently for pretty cheap, like $9.99. I wasn't sure about it though. Always considered her a less alienating alternative to Mirah, and not in a bad way.

Evan, Monday, 22 October 2012 21:51 (five years ago) Permalink

don't know mirah....outlaster on vinyl for $10 is a bargain

terrell sug (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 22 October 2012 21:58 (five years ago) Permalink

Oh! Give her a shot. Try the "Advisory Committee" album.

Evan, Monday, 22 October 2012 22:16 (five years ago) Permalink

Got Outlaster on vinyl the other week. As scott mentions in an Outlaster thread, it sounds great and the packaging is fantastic. I used to be a total stan for the simpler arrangements in Dogs, but the strings in Outlaster won me over in the end. I have to add Dogs to the vinyls wanted list, though. I first heard Dogs while visiting a friend in the Audio Recording program at IU. A professor let him borrow it as an example of a great recording.

Dogs has been reissued at least once on vinyl, I bought it from her when she played in mpls w/Jim White

terrell sug (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 22 October 2012 22:28 (five years ago) Permalink

Reissued in Europe maybe? All of the copies on discogs ship from Germany/the Netherlands

yeah no idea, but there's no way it was the orig. press...unless she had a box leftoever that she brought on tour

the jim white record is kinda hard to find i think, now...i grabbed the last copy she had from the merch table and bummed everyone behind me out

terrell sug (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 22 October 2012 22:32 (five years ago) Permalink

btw, evan - mirah (the name) was bugging me and i realized a friend of mine put out a bunch of her records (or at least the vinyl versions)

when amazon says it's "temporarily out of stock", does it really mean "probably out of stock forever"?

yeah probably gone...

honestly, sometimes if you have a decent bigger indie record store in your town you could call over and see if they have one collecting dust for list price, i've found stuff like that before

there are so many artists who really strain for a mysterious presence or mystique and she just has it without even reaching out for it, it's just part and parcel of her lyrics and singing and guitar playing.

I like Will Oldham, but a Bonnie/Nina duet album would not be a high point in either of their discographies, and he's done enough throwaway collaborations as it is.

yusef latifah (unregistered), Wednesday, 7 January 2015 15:56 (two years ago) Permalink

on spotify if you go to her artist page there's a single there from 2008, two songs that appear to be from the Jim White/You Follow Me sessions called "What She Doesn't Know" and "Your Red Nose"

really good stuff, two new Nina songs you might not have heard, at least I hadn't....

there are also non-album tracks on singles on cry cry baby and you can take your time off outlaster

the (4 or 5) peel sessions are full of things that aren't on the records. the one mp3 blog that was sharing them got asked to take them down, i've heard, ahead of an official release. but this was years ago and nothing ever appeared.
