Excerpt

The Magnetic Fields are guests on the latest episode of the Sonos podcast Music Is Everything! hosted by Elia Einhorn. Stephin Merritt, Claudia Gonson, and Sam Davol perform several songs and chat with Einhorn, who says: "I'll admit, dear listener, I was glad to be wearing a mask in the studio, not just for my safety, not just for their safety, but because my face absolutely crumbled a couple of times at the power of Stephin Merritt's lyrics and emotional delivery." You can hear the session here. The band will tour the US and Canada in April.

    DAVÓNE TINES & THE TRUTH’s new work ROBESON, which premiered last month at NYC’s Little Island, is due September 13 on Nonesuch. In ROBESON, Tines’ solo recording debut, the musician grapples with the legacy of a hero. Exploding the musical repertoire of Paul Robeson, Tines and his band the Truth—pianist John Bitoy and sound artist Khari Lucas—take listeners on a trip from the stage of Carnegie Hall to the floor of a Moscow hotel room in an attempt to understand an icon not through aspiring to his monumentality, but through connecting to his vulnerability. The album track “THE HOUSE I LIVE IN" and a video for it directed by Tines are available today.
