    Congratulations to Jonny Greenwood, whose score to Paul Thomas Anderson's film Phantom Thread won the prestigious Ivor Novello Award for Best Original Film Score in a ceremony held in London earlier today. The soundtrack includes eighteen compositions by Greenwood and was recorded in London with a sixty-piece string orchestra. IndieWire calls it "a masterpiece," naming it one of the century's best.

    "Though the exact day is not known, it was fifteen years ago that Lake Street Dive became a band," says Rachael Price. "McDuck wrote our name on the chalkboard of a practice room and it was done. We didn’t know each other that well. We had zero idea of what kind of music we would play. We certainly didn’t know that fateful day marked the beginning of the longest platonic double date of my life. We have been through so much together ... Happy Fifteenth Bandiversary, y'all!"

    Rhiannon Giddens, who begins her four-night residency with the Boston Pops titled Redefining American Music tonight, stopped by Boston's Museum of Fine Arts to perform a few tunes in the museum's Musical Instruments Gallery. She takes a look at the MFA's historical banjo collection and plays one of the banjos and sings, with Carolina Chocolate Drops' Hubby Jenkins on bones and Jason Sypher on bass. You can watch it here.

Artist Spotlight

  • Walk Through Fire, the debut album from Yola, establishes her as a country soul queen from the first note. The Dan Auerbach–produced album puts a contemporary twist on a traditional sonic tapestry of orchestral strings, fiddle, steel, and shimmering tremolo guitars. Walk Through Fire is a genre-bending release from an artist whose arresting vocals captivate with sincere tales of heartache and loves lost, forgotten, and broken.

  • On Pulitzer Prize–winning composer Caroline Shaw's album Orange, Attacca Quartet performs six of her pieces for string quartet. The string quartet form "has existed for hundreds of years, but there's something, for me, beautiful and ritualistic about coming back to that form," says Shaw. "This album is a celebration of the simple, immediate, unadorned beauty of a natural, everyday, familiar thing."

  • Rhiannon Giddens’s album there is no Other, recorded with the multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi, was produced by Joe Henry and tracked over five days in Dublin. The album is at once a condemnation of “othering” and a celebration of the spread of ideas, connectivity, and shared experience.

  • On Finding Gabriel, Brad Mehldau performs on piano, synthesizers, percussion, Fender Rhodes, and vocals. Guest musicians include Ambrose Akinmusire, Sara Caswell, Kurt Elling, Joel Frahm, Mark Guiliana, Gabriel Kahane, Becca Stevens, and others.

  • The Black Keys' first album in five years, "Let's Rock," is due June 28 on Easy Eye Sound / Nonesuch Records! It's a return to the straightforward rock of the band's early days. Pre-order to download the album tracks "Eagle Birds" and "Lo/Hi" now.
