qu PICTURE . Nina Nastasua

Simple pleasures are all too fleeting nowadays, like the records of Nina Nastasia, which should be savoured like the rare Scottish sunny summer days. Her fourth album On Leaving - out on FatCat, the home of Slgur Ros - is a thing of true beauty. Devoid of cliche, she sketches out simple, intimate tales of complex people through spare application

of piano, drums and acoustic guitar and a creamy, fluid vocal. On paper, her music would suggest calm and

' restraint, but in person it's hard

not to get blown away. IABC, Glasgow, Tue 27 Nov.
