    In a new video, Rostam deconstructs his song "Gwan," a track on his debut album, Half-Light, that references the traditional tunes "Suo Gân" and "Simple Gifts." "I think there's something worthy about striving to make the most complex music that you can but still use melodies," he says; "and maybe using melodies that people know makes it more interesting, because then you can kind of track the evolution of stuff." Watch how he made the song in the video here. Rostam performs at The Growlers Six festival in LA this Saturday and starts a European tour at the Pitchfork Avant-Garde Festival in Paris November 1.

    Robert Plant's new album, Carry Fire, is out now. As with his 2014 album, lullaby and… The Ceaseless Roar, it features his band The Sensational Space Shifters. They are also joined here by special guests, including Chrissie Hynde. NPR calls the album "transfixing ... rivetingly intimate." The New York Times calls it "a swirling mix of deep blues, mountain music, North African rhythms and Zeppelin-heavy weight." The AP says: "There are few undisputed rock stars this accomplished still taking musical risks. Plant’s songwriting remains a class above ... 'Out here the fire's still burning / So long into my night,' he sings. Long may it burn."

    The award-winning French singer and composer Camille's fifth studio album, OUÏ, is out now in the US on Nonesuch. Recorded over a year in La Chartreuse, a 14th-century monastery-turned-artist's residence in Avignon, OUÏ features folk music, hymns, ballads, pop, lullabies, and a cappella, with Camille on all vocal parts and all but one song in French. "A Parisian pop genius," says Pitchfork. "OUÏ is rich with brilliant, funny ideas about conception, nature, and identity, with plenty of pure pleasure hits for non-Francophones." Camille performs an intimate album-release show at (Le) Poisson Rouge in NYC on Monday, October 16.
