    Rokia Traoré's new album, Né So, is out February 12. But you don't need to wait till then to hear it: the album is streaming in full till then as an NPR First Listen. NPR's Anastasia Tsioulcas, who calls Traoré "fantastically gifted," notes that "the idea of refuge ... serves as a central catalyst to Traoré's gorgeous new album." She concludes: "Né So is a sonically beautiful project, for sure, and it's easy to get lost in the lilting rhythms and Traoré's smoky voice. But if you're simply sitting back with this album, you may have missed her point." Hear Né So in full here. Traoré kicks off a tour in London on Saturday, followed by stops throughout Europe in the weeks ahead. She heads to the US in late March for performances in NYC, DC, and Savannah.

    Michael Daves has released two versions of the Ralph Stanley–penned tune "Pretty Polly," off his forthcoming album, Orchids and Violence, due February 26. As with the whole double album's repertoire, Daves offers both a more straightforward bluegrass interpretation, featuring a band of roots-music innovators, and a second, more raw, experimental rock take on those tunes mostly played by Daves.
