    The Arcs, Rhiannon Giddens Make Rolling Stone's 50 Best Albums of 2015 List

    Rolling Stone has published its list of the 50 Best Albums of 2015, and among them are two Nonesuch Records releases: The Arcs' debut album, Yours, Dreamily, and Rhiannon Giddens's solo debut album, Tomorrow Is My Turn.

    The Arcs' debut album, Yours, Dreamily, features 13 tracks written and recorded collaboratively by the band—Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, 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. Rolling Stone calls the album "a riveting extension of the Keys' progressive-blues aesthetic."

    Rhiannon Giddens, a founding member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, released her solo debut album, Tomorrow Is My Turn, in February. "Giddens' singular union of country-church fire, concentrated hurt and operatic poise is especially compelling in the earthy restraint of T Bone Burnett's production," says Rolling Stone, calling her "a rare voice bound for glory." As previously noted, the album has also made Mojo's list of the Top 10 Folk Albums and Top 10 Americana Albums of the year.

    "Laurie Anderson Has a Message for Us Humans," Sam Anderson's New York Times Magazine feature on Laurie Anderson in last week's issue of the magazine, is today's episode of The Sunday Read from the Times podcast The Daily. Before reading his article, the writer conveys five questions Laurie Anderson had shared with him, "a sort of test that uses to figure out whether a piece that she's working on is good or not ... 'Is it complicated enough? Is it simple enough? Is it crazy enough? Is it beautiful enough? And finally, Is it stupid enough?' And I thought that was kind of a great criteria for proceeding with life, with whatever you are doing."
