  • St Germain (aka Ludovic Navarre), whose albums Boulevard (1995) and Tourist (2000) originated a genre of French electronic music that later included artists like Air, has returned to the studio to create his first album in 15 years, and it's "well worth the wait," says the Independent. The self-titled record marries percussive grooves, which have always been central to St Germain’s sound, with a new element: traditional Malian music. Pre-orders of the album include an instant download of the opening track, "Real Blues."

  • The Arcs' debut album, Yours, Dreamily, features 13 tracks written and recorded collaboratively by the band—Dan Auerbach, Leon Michels, Richard Swift, Homer Steinweiss, and Nick Movshon—with the musicians playing a large array of roles both vocally and instrumentally; also on the album are Kenny Vaughan and Mariachi Flor de Toloache. "Right from the drop, Yours, Dreamily, ignites like a cigarette flicked on a stream of gasoline," says NPR. It's "one of Auerbach's most ambitious and fully realized albums." Mojo exclaims: "This one, for sure, is a keeper." Pre-orders include an instant download of the album tracks "Stay in My Corner," "Outta My Mind," and "Put a Flower in Your Pocket."

  • Lianne La Havas's album Blood was inspired by her Jamaican and Greek family heritage and by Jamaica's love of grooves, rhythms, and syncopation. "The album demands, and rewards, all the attention you can give it," raves Rolling Stone. It's "a seductive blend of poetic lyricism, sultry vocals, and strong yet understated musicianship," says the Daily Beast. "La Havas is a powerhouse with a full heart," says NPR, "creating music that's sweeping, inspiring and downright fun."

  • This 7-inch vinyl single features "Outta My Mind," from The Arcs debut album, Yours Dreamily, b/w the non-album track "My Mind," exclusive to this vinyl release. The Arcs are Dan Auerbach, Leon Michels, Richard Swift, Homer Steinweiss, and Nick Movshon. Also on the album are Kenny Vaughan and Mariachi Flor de Toloache.

  • Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell’s The Traveling Kind comprises 11 duet tracks, including six new songs written by Harris and Crowell with co-writing by Mary Carr, Cory Chisel, Will Jennings, and Larry Klein. Produced by Joe Henry, the album follows the longtime friends’ Grammy-winning first duet album, 2013’s Old Yellow Moon. "Here, they consciously embrace the full breadth of their expression," says NPR. "This is what it sounds like when true equals, both deep into their journeys, draw out the best in each other." Rolling Stone says: "Their creative partnership sounds stronger than ever." 

  • Inspired by the Floyd Mayweather / Manny Pacquiao boxing match on Saturday, May 2, The Arcs release a 7" with the songs "Stay in My Corner" b/w "Tomato Can." 

  • Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Olivia Chaney makes her album debut with The Longest River. On the album, Chaney balances her original compositions with a broad array of covers she has newly arranged, from jazz to Purcell to folk. "Her voice holds the purity, tension, dignity and sorrow of a heritage full of songs about lost love and cruel fate," says the New York Times. "Chaney is thoroughly grounded in the past, from medieval music to [Joni] Mitchell. But in her quiet way, she’s radical." The Observer calls the album "an enchanting, stately creation." PopMatters exclaims: "It's pretty much perfect."

  • Released for Record Store Day 2015, Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters' EP More Roar features three tracks on black 10” vinyl recorded live during the group’s lullaby and... Ceaseless Roar World Tour 2014: Side A is "Turn It Up" / "Arbaden," and side B is “Poor Howard” and “Whole Lotta Love (Medley).” The EP is limited to 10,000 copies. A very limited quantity is now available in the Nonesuch Store.

  • The Staves, three sisters originally from Watford, England, make their Nonesuch debut with If I Was. The Justin Vernon-produced album was recorded at Vernon's studio near Eau Claire, Wisconsin, where he recorded his 2012 self-titled Bon Iver album. "The voices are still silken, the sibling harmonies still graceful," says the Guardian of the new album, but with "the music taking thrilling leaps in character and complexity. The Watford sisters’ decision to work with Justin Vernon ... as producer was inspired." The New York Times says the trio brings "angelic harmonies" to the "consistently daring" album. Stereogum calls it "essential listening."
