    Caroline Shaw's Album "Orange," Performed by Attacca Quartet, Due on Orange Vinyl on July 24

    Pulitzer Prize–winning composer Caroline Shaw’s Orange, which earned Attacca Quartet a Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance, will be available on vinyl for the first time on May 8 on July 24, 2020, via New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records. The two-LP vinyl edition includes the album on double 180-gram orange vinyl, pressed at Record Industry in the Netherlands, along with a printed excerpt from the score, and is available to pre-order now in the Nonesuch Store and Bandcamp.

    Orange, which features six of Shaw’s pieces for string quartet, is the first full-length album to exclusively feature works by Shaw and was met with great critical acclaim upon its CD and digital release last year. "Completely gorgeous in so many ways," exclaims BBC Radio 3. "It hits you everywhere, all at once." "A love letter to the string quartet," says NPR. "[W]hen you hear all the imaginative sounds on Orange, you know you're listening to the voice of a strong composer." "[T]he pieces on Orange shoot off in thrilling and unpredictable directions," says Pitchfork. "The music of Orange exudes joy and a sense of wildness."

    Attacca Quartet will perform selections from Orange as part of a Caroline Shaw Composers Portraits concert at Columbia University's Miller Theatre in New York City tonight; Sō Percussion and Shaw herself perform on the program as well. Later this season, Shaw and Attacca will be joined by Gabriel Kahane for a concert at the Phillips Collection in Washington, DC, on May 3. Shaw will perform with Roomful of Teeth, the vocal ensemble of which she is a part, for Lincoln Center's American Songbook series next week and will take part in the Big Ears Festival in Knoxville at the end of March.

    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.
