    Mountain Man—the trio of Amelia Meath, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, and Molly Sarlé—has released Look at Me Don’t Look at Me, a live album recorded in November 2018 at Saint Mark’s Cathedral in Seattle. The live recording captures the band’s intimate touring shows in support of its acclaimed Nonesuch release, Magic Ship, and features tracks from that album, as well as songs from the trio’s 2010 debut, Made the Harbor; Molly Sarle's “Human”; covers of Fiona Apple's “Hot Knife” and Michael Hurley's "Blue Mountain"; and the group’s singularly quirky banter.

    The Staves have released "Nazareth," the band’s first new music since its 2017 EP with yMusic. "We recorded 'Nazareth' in one take on a field recorder sat outside the studio in the summer of 2018," says the trio. "The sun was shining and the birds were singing. We tried recording it in the studio but just kept coming back to this version. It seemed to have the magic.  The song was intended to be in the spirit of an Irish blessing or a kind of a prayer, asking to be kept safe—but it pretty quickly became a more personal and introspective lyric. Moments of glory quickly faded. Worrying, trying. How we mean everything and nothing at the same time. To everyone, to no one."

    Laurie Anderson is the guest on the latest episode of Alan Cumming and Chris Sweeney's podcast, Homo Sapiens. "She's such a legend," says Cumming. He ascribes to her a queer sensibility, which he defines as "an openness to things other than your own experience and a compassion and a generosity and respect for people, and you think everybody should have as good a go as you do." Anderson joined the hosts prior to the COVID-19 pandemic for a wide-ranging conversation on religion, finding perspective, meditation, managing stress, and the state of the world.
