Excerpt: 

If there's a ray of sunlight to be found today, perhaps it's that it's that the vernal equinox has arrived in the Northern Hemisphere. To mark the first day of spring, we've updated our Ring in Spring playlist of Nonesuch recordings as a soundtrack to the melting snows, blossoming trees, and hopefully healthier days soon to come. Here are some seasonally appropriate songs from David Byrne, Dave Malloy, Devendra Banhart, Jeff Parker, Pat Metheny, Caroline Shaw, Daughter of Swords, Early James, Yola, Mountain Man, Fleet Foxes, Conor Oberst, The Magnetic Fields, Kronos Quartet, Brad Mehldau, The Black Keys, Robert Plant, k.d. lang, Emmylou Harris, Chris Thile, Allen Toussaint, Randy Newman, Caetano Veloso, Tigran Hamasyan, Mandy Patinkin, and more.

    Composer, singer, and guitarist Vilray—who wrote the songs for and is one half of the duo on the album Rachael & Vilray with Lake Street Dive's Rachael Price—was slated to perform at the Savannah Music Festival in Georgia this month. Instead, he took part in the festival's online SMF at Noon30 Concert Series of at-home performances. He gave a solo take on "At Your Mother's House," from Rachael & Vilray, and a new song for new love in a time of social isolation called "A Love Song Played Slow," from Brooklyn. You can watch the set here.
