    Hurray for the Riff Raff (aka Alynda Segarra) has shared "Hawkmoon," a song from their new album, The Past Is Still Alive, out on Friday. It's a rebellious road song and stirring remembrance of the first trans woman they ever met: a poet, punk, and fellow traveler named Miss Jonathan. The track arrives with a heist film of a music video, shot along the desolate highways and dusty deserts of the small New Mexican town Tucumcari, starring Segarra and writer, actor, and musician Denny. You can watch the video, directed by Jeff Perlman, here.

    The second album from Haitian-American singer and composer Nathalie Joachim, Ki moun ou ye, is out now on Nonesuch / New Amsterdam Records. On the album, Joachim takes listeners through an intimate collection of music that ponders its title’s question: “Who are you?” Inspired by the remote Caribbean farmland that her family continues to call home after seven generations and performed in both English and Haitian Creole, the work examines the richness of one’s voice—an instrument that brings with it DNA, ancestry, and identity—in a vibrant tapestry of Joachim’s voice, and intricately sampled vocal textures underscored by an acoustic instrumental ensemble. "On her dazzling new album," says Bandcamp, "she's found an outlet that allows her to express the full diapason of her interests and creativity." The Quietus exclaims: "Joachim’s powerful voice provides the thread that binds together a glorious tapestry."

    "Brad Mehldau stands as a beacon of innovation in the jazz world, intertwining the richness of classical music with the spontaneity of jazz to create a sound uniquely his own," Rick Beato says of his guest on Everything Music. "Mehldau has carved out a niche for himself not just as a pianist of exceptional skill and depth but also as a composer who likes to explore and blend genres. His ability to traverse musical landscapes—from the works of Bach to the songs of Radiohead—has not only garnered him critical acclaim but also a dedicated following ... Needless to say I’m a huge fan of Brad‘s music." You can watch their conversation with musical examples from Mehldau at the piano here.

    Hurray for the Riff Raff, aka Alynda Segarra, has released "Colossus of Roads” and Snake Plant (The Past Is Still Alive),” two new tracks from their upcoming album, The Past Is Still Alive, due February 23. "I've only had this experience a couple of times, where a song falls on me—it’s all there, and I don't do anything," Segarra says. "Writing ‘Colossus of Roads’ felt like creating a space where all us outsiders can be safe together. That doesn’t exist, but it exists in our minds, and it exists in this song—this one is sacred to me. I’ve also always wanted to make my version of Bob Dylan’s ‘I Was Young When I Left Home,’ and ‘Snake Plant (The Past Is Still Alive)’ is it.”

    "This was the first song we recorded for the album, and we had just written it so there’s a freshness and an immediacy to it for us,” The Staves say of "I Don’t Say It, But I Feel It," the new song from their upcoming album, All Now. “The song is about passing surges of emotions and memories that often don't get expressed or articulated. It’s exploring that state of stillness on the outside but with a flurry of things happening below the surface and how, often, we don’t let on what we’re really feeling most of the time or how much we’re feeling it."
