    The Staves are featured on the latest episode of NPR's All Songs Considered, titled "Nine Creative Musicians You Should Know." The episode centers on songs that suggest "a means of making magic out of circumstance," starting with The Staves' "No Me, No You, No More," off their new Justin Vernon-produced album, If I Was. It's "a rich, compelling folk song heavy with longing but buoyed by the trio's sweet, high harmonies," says the show. "The song is a testament to letting go of expectation in the midst of creation, to finding the way forward on a road no one expected to travel." The Staves perform at Rough Trade in Brooklyn next Monday, May 11, and at Vernon's Eaux Claires festival in July.
