The Staves’ new album, All Now, produced by John Congleton (Sharon Van Etten, Angel Olsen), is due March 22, marking their debut album as the duo of Jessica and Camilla Staveley-Taylor, after their sister Emily’s departure. “There was a delayed reaction to trauma and these big changes out of your control,” Jess says of the period after the February 2021 release of their album Good Woman, as the band—like everyone—was forced to sit with their thoughts. Struggling after two years of deep solitude and pain, The Staves did what they know how to do best: they got back to writing with the idea of going back to basics and focusing almost solely on each other and their guitars as a starting point.Wednesday,November 15,2023Gustavo Santaolalla’s Acclaimed 1998 Album ‘Ronroco’ Due on Vinyl for First Time, January 26, on Nonesuch
Grammy and Academy Award winner Gustavo Santaolalla—who this week received the Latin Grammy Trustees Award—releases his acclaimed 1998 album Ronroco on vinyl for the first time in a newly remastered edition from Nonesuch on January 26, 2024. The singer, composer, and producer’s classic album—which takes its name from a South American stringed instrument—comprises twelve original tunes inspired by traditional Argentinean music and influenced by music of Japan, Africa, and Eastern Europe. “Ronroco conjures bucolic images and feelings for me,” filmmaker Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu writes in the new liner note. “There’s always a note that surprises, breaks the pattern of the rainstorm, turning into silence, a gentle drizzle, or escalating into a tempest.”Journal Topics: Album ReleaseWednesday,November 15,2023
