Excerpt: 

Gabriel Kahane, now touring Europe with music from his album Book of Travelers, has released two new tracks digitally. "I wrote 'Little Love' as a looping study on guitar and always wanted to release a version that reflected the original concept," he says of the new “ruined lace edition” of that Book of Travelers track. "'Trophy Longhorns' appears as a solo piano tune in the staged version of Book of Travelers," he says of the other new track; "it didn't fit emotionally or aesthetically with the rest of the album, but I thought it should see the light of day."

Gabriel Kahane, who is currently touring Europe with music from his Nonesuch debut album, Book of Travelers, has released two new tracks digitally: "Little Love (ruined lace edition)" and "Trophy Longhorns." The tracks are available to download now on iTunes, Bandcamp, and the Nonesuch Store, and can be heard on Spotify and Apple Music.

"I wrote 'Little Love' as a looping study on guitar and always wanted to release a version that reflected the original concept," Kahane says of the newly released “ruined lace edition” of a song that appears on the Book of Travelers album. "'Trophy Longhorns' appears as a solo piano tune in the staged version of Book of Travelers,” he says of the other newly released track; "it didn't fit emotionally or aesthetically with the rest of the album, but I thought it should see the light of day."

Kahane can also be heard singing on the just-released Brad Mehldau track "The Garden," from Mehldau's forthcoming album, Finding Gabriel; you can hear it here.

To pick up a copy of Book of Travelers, head to your local independent record store, Bandcamp, Amazon, iTunes, and the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include a download of the complete album at checkout, or listen on Apple Music and Spotify

Orange, which features six of Shaw’s pieces for string quartet, is the first full-length album to exclusively feature works by Shaw. "Completely gorgeous in so many ways," exclaims BBC Radio 3. "It hits you everywhere, all at once." "A love letter to the string quartet," says NPR. "[W]hen you hear all the imaginative sounds on Orange, you know you're listening to the voice of a strong composer."
