    Robert Plant's new album, lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar, has already begun to receive rave reviews in the UK. The album has earned four stars from Q and Mojo and nine out of ten in UncutQ says "he’s produced his best solo album yet … a beautifully moving, soul-stirring, bravely genre-blurring album." Mojo, calling it "a rewarding, often touching listen," makes it Album of the Month, as does Uncut, which says it is "a record that deftly aligns the chakras of Plant’s storied career while also being a bold act of reinvention ... His uniqueness has never been more apparent."

    Nickel Creek have performed a Tiny Desk Concert for NPR's All Songs Considered, featuring four songs from the group's new album, A Dotted Line. "Nickel Creek was made to sing and play around a single microphone, so a Tiny Desk Concert seemed inevitable," says All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen. "The trio, backed here by bassist Mark Schatz, has no equal. Nickel Creek has been doing this on and off since its members were kids, and what blows me away is the comfort and ease with which they navigate their instruments. That skill, and the creative force behind it, is a joy and a thrill to witness." Watch it here.

    John Adams’s 1995 "songplay" I Was Looking at the Ceiling and Then I Saw the Sky receives its long-overdue LA premiere in a Long Beach Opera performance at the Ford Amphitheatre on Saturday. The piece, with a libretto by the late poet June Jordan, uses the 1994 Northridge, California, earthquake as a starting point to explore race, gender, and immigration issues among young Angelenos. Nonesuch Records released the recording of Ceiling/Sky in 1998, featuring Audra McDonald, among others.
