    Listen: Rostam Talks with Jenny Eliscu on "LSQ"
    Alex John Beck

    Rostam, whose solo debut album, Half-Light, was released last year on Nonesuch Records, is a guest on the latest episode of the LSQ podcast with host Jenny Eliscu. The two met more than a decade ago, when Eliscu fell in "love at first listen" for Vampire Weekend, and she wrote about the band for Rolling Stone. "Rostam and I became friends and have had numerous conversations on the record and off in the years since but never one as focused as the conversation" for the podcast, she says. You can hear her chat with Rostam, whom she describes as an "all-around awesome dude," below.

    To pick up a copy of Half-Light, head to iTunes, Amazon, or the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include a download of the complete album at checkout; you can also hear it on Apple Music and Spotify. Rostam released Half-Light Remixes: EP 1—reimagined versions of Half-Light by Tourist, Jim-E Stack, Instupendo, and Matsor Projects—earlier this year.

    Yola's debut solo album, Walk Through Fire, produced by Dan Auerbach, is out now on Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound label. The album "showcases Yola's otherworldly vocals and compelling songwriting," says NPR. "It's the work of an artist sure to stun audiences for years to come." "[S]he arrives an instant, incandescent vocal star," exclaims the Sunday Times. "Rich with vibrato and echoing Dusty in Memphis, her singing elevates a sequence of immaculately upholstered songs to greatness ... Walk Through Fire introduces an artist who is unmistakably the real deal." "Can't. Stop. Listening," says the Sunday Telegraph. "A star in the making, for sure."
