    Lake Street Dive drummer Mike Calabrese is on The Mother Earth Podcast to talk about the climate crisis, mental health, and how his getting involved in the former helped improve the latter. You can hear their conversation here. "Vulnerability is kind of what got me into activism," says Calabrese. "It's almost impossible if you're truly depressed to be creative and write music and create good art. When you come through it, you can look at it and create art to help you heal. But that's the point where you go: am I just gonna wait around for the next time, or do I want to push past into becoming more involved and ultimately redefining how you want to live in the world."

    Randy Newman is a special surprise guest caller on the latest episode of Office Hours Live with Tim Heidecker. "You truly are a hero to me," Heidecker says. "You're in the Top Three. C&C Music Factory is No. 1." You can hear their conversation here. Newman's set at Newport Folk Festival's "Folk On" last Saturday was among "The 10 Best Things We Saw" there, says Rolling Stone. "Randy Newman delivered a typically powerful 19-song solo piano set ... blending his signature mix of intentionally inscrutable ambiguity, caustic satire, and gorgeously wounded romanticism."

    In the winter of 2016, Conor Oberst found himself hibernating in his hometown of Omaha after living in New York City for more than a decade. He emerged with the unexpectedly raw, unadorned solo album Ruminations. The results are almost sketch-like in their sparseness: Oberst alone with his guitar, piano, and harmonica. The Ruminations (Expanded Edition), first released on vinyl for RSD Drops earlier this year, is now available on CD and digitally as well, and includes five bonus tracks, four of which are previously unreleased. The vinyl, pressed on two 140-gram LPs, includes an exclusive etching on side D.
