    Lake Street Dive Celebrates Its Fifteen-Year "Bandiversary"

    Congratulations and happy fifteenth "bandiversary" to Lake Street Dive!

    "Though the exact day is not known, it was fifteen years ago that Lake Street Dive became a band," writes bandmember Rachael Price on her Instagram. "McDuck wrote our name on the chalkboard of a practice room and it was done. We didn’t know each other that well. We had zero idea of what kind of music we would play. We certainly didn’t know that fateful day marked the beginning of the longest platonic double date of my life. We have been through so much together. We ran many a touring vehicle into the ground, we’ve helped each other do our taxes, we’ve played one ga-billion shows, we’ve made one ga-billion mistakes, we laugh. It’s not cliche y’all. We laughed so much. I love these people to the moon and beyond and we really hope someday to play on the moon. And how nice that will be with our wonderful new(ish) member Akie Bermiss who’s musicianship after all this time has sent us into the stratosphere. Happy Fifteenth Bandiversary, y'all!!"

    Rhiannon Giddens and Francesco Turrisi were on NPR's World Cafe to perform from the new album there is no Other and talk with host Talia Schlanger. It's "a fascinating collaboration," says Schlanger. "Both Rhiannon and Francesco are devoted students of music history whose mission is to use the past to illuminate the present and to give credit where credit’s due for the way instruments and ideas have moved over time between people. They used all that knowledge to make gorgeous music together on a new album called there is no Other." Hear the episode here.

    The latest episode of Robert Plant's new podcast series, Digging Deep, digs deep into "Bones of Saints," a song from his latest album, Carry Fire. "It's about vitality. I can't hold back the hands of time or anything like that, but I can only be in environments where people really, really mean it musically," Plant says of creating new music with his band the Sensational Space Shifters. "We have a kind of inherent capacity to start a new project and know that we have business to do ... If it gets anywhere at all, this music, it ought to be saying something, it ought to be reflecting." You can listen to the episode and watch the video for the track here.
