    Nonesuch Records releases James Farm’s sophomore album, City Folk, on October 27, 2014. The album features a new collection of ten original tunes written by all four members of the collaborative band: saxophonist Joshua Redman, pianist Aaron Parks, bassist Matt Penman, and drummer Eric Harland. Redman says, “The first record was more of a proposition, almost a question. ‘What is James Farm?’ The second record is, in a certain sense, a partial answer.” The album is available for pre-order on iTunes and in the Nonesuch Store with an instant download of the opening song “Two Steps” from the record, written by Penman, which you can hear here.

    David Byrne and Fatboy Slim's stage musical Here Lies Love will open in Sydney, Australia, in May 2015 as the theatrical centerpiece of the Vivid Festival. "Here Lies Love is unlike any musical previously staged in Australia," says Australian producer Rodney Rigby; "it is a transformative experience with unique and immersive staging by director Alex Timbers, where actors perform on platforms and moving catwalks, creating a club-like environment whilst forging a special relationship between the actors and the audience." Here Lies Love performances continue in NYC and open in London on September 30.
