    Mountain Man's set at NPR Music's SXSW Tiny Desk Family Hour was among the "'Wow' Moments from SXSW 2019," said All Songs Considered. You can now watch the trio—Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, Molly Sarlé, Amelia Meath—perform three songs from the set: "AGT" from their album Magic Ship; Sarlé's "Human"; and "Grasses" by Daughter of Swords, Sauser-Monnig's new solo project. NPR's Stephen Thompson, in sharing this "softly joyful set," notes Mountain Man's "resplendent blend" and the "wonderful folk-pop songs" to come from Daughter of Swords.

Artist Spotlight

  • On Pulitzer Prize–winning composer Caroline Shaw's album Orange, Attacca Quartet performs six of her pieces for string quartet. The string quartet form "has existed for hundreds of years, but there's something, for me, beautiful and ritualistic about coming back to that form," says Shaw. "This album is a celebration of the simple, immediate, unadorned beauty of a natural, everyday, familiar thing."

  • Rhiannon Giddens’s album there is no Other, recorded with the multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi, was produced by Joe Henry and tracked over five days in Dublin. The album is at once a condemnation of “othering” and a celebration of the spread of ideas, connectivity, and shared experience.

  • Pianist Jeremy Denk's new album, c. 1300–c. 2000, presents a centuries-long story of constantly emerging possibilities and styles of musical expression, an evolution drawn in a single arc by the music of twenty-four different composers, from Guillaume de Machaut to György Ligeti. The Telegraph says: "Quite exhilarating."

  • Joshua Redman Quartet's Come What May is the first album in almost two decades from the saxophonist and his longtime friends and colleagues pianist Aaron Goldberg, bassist Reuben Rogers, and drummer Gregory Hutchinson. "Mr. Redman's place is secure as one of the most effusive and engaging tenor saxophonists in straight-ahead jazz," says the New York Times, and the Quartet is "well attuned to his language of elastic tenacity."

  • The Black Keys return with the song "Lo/Hi," the first new music from the band since its 2014 album, Turn Blue. "Lo/Hi" was written and produced by Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, and recorded at Nashville's Easy Eye Sound studio.
