    Punch Brothers, Laurie Anderson, Kronos Quartet Win Grammy Awards

    Congratulations to Punch Brothers, Laurie Anderson, and Kronos Quartet, all of whom won Grammy Awards in the 61st premiere ceremony held in Los Angeles on Sunday! The artists all won awards for their latest Nonesuch Records releases.

    Punch Brothers' new album, All Ashore, their first self-produced album, won the Grammy Award for Best Folk Album, the band's first Grammy Award. "It's a meditation on committed relationships in the present day," says Chris Thile, "particularly in the present climate." The Independent calls it "an album of rich instrumentation and understated beauty that reveals deeper nuances on each and every listen." The Boston Globe says it's "a deeply meaningful and downright gorgeous record." To pick up a copy of All Ashore, head to the Nonesuch Store now, and listen below.

    Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet's Landfall won the Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music / Small Ensemble Performance. This is the first Grammy Award for Laurie Anderson; Kronos Quartet previously won the Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music Performance for their 2003 album with Dawn Upshaw, Berg: Lyric Suite. Inspired by Anderson's experience of Hurricane Sandy, it is the first collaboration between the iconic storyteller/musician and the groundbreaking string quartet, who perform together on the recording. Landfall juxtaposes lush electronics and traditional strings by Kronos with Anderson's powerful descriptions of loss, from water-logged pianos to disappearing animal species to Dutch karaoke bars. The Washington Post calls it "riveting, gorgeous." To pick up a copy of Landfall, head to the Nonesuch Store now, and listen below.

    David Byrne's Nonesuch Records debut album, Grown Backwards, first released on March 16, 2004, will make its vinyl debut almost 15 years later, on March 15, 2019. The double-vinyl edition is the original album plus six additional tracks, including a duet with Caetano Veloso on their song "Dreamworld." It's "one of Byrne's most rewarding experiments yet," said the Guardian. "It fits alongside the best of his career and adds another solid release to a solo catalog which will hopefully become more cherished in time," said Pitchfork in 2004. "In 20 years, as we straighten our faces with botulism, braces, and stem cells, the album will stand up." Pre-order now in the Nonesuch Store.
