Out of My Province by Nadia Reid

Out Of My Province is the third album by New Zealand singer / songwriter Nadia Reid. This album sees her hooking up with the Spacebomb crew. Spacebomb is a label co-founded by Matthew E. White who produces all the records and uses the Spacebomb in-house band, which includes White on guitar. They tend to make things a little more funky and soulful than they otherwise would be. Nadia Reid and Spacebomb are an intriguing combination.

A soulful and gently woozy record here from Nadia Reid. Immaculately rendered and downcast, 'Out of My Province' is a quiet, Sunday afternoon sort of a thing. 

Nadia Reid’s voice is the undisputed focal (or vocal) point of ‘Out Of My Province’. It seems to fit flush against the arrangements, with the subdued instrumentation complementing her pipes perfectly. She has a beautifully clear tone with just a hint of huskiness and grit. What a treat. Although I'd love to hear her really belt something out, it remains the album's most riveting aspect. 

In its more propulsive moments I’m reminded of Van Morrison’s ‘Tupelo Honey’ and ‘Moondance’. Both artists share an occasionally joyful, exultant feel that stands at odds with often downcast lyrical topics and a melancholic vocal tone. Both also have a propensity for the odd toot of horn section and the whirr of a hammond organ. Elsewhere I love the baroque pop of ‘Best Thing’, with its sparse percussion and distant strings. ‘Oh Canada’ is another highlight, a slightly whimsical take on soul and R&B that conjurs images of dusty highways and speeding cars. 

Although I'd like to hear more energetic stuff in future, the questioning, self-reflective tone that pervades 'Out of My Province' is perfect for these cold, grey March days.
