Excerpt

"The Staves' songs are sweet and melancholic, often belying the depth of emotion and subtleness of their lyrics," says Monocle on Culture host Robert Bound. "Their music manages to be both gentle and punchy, driven home by their perfect, perfect harmonies." The duo is on the podcast to discuss their new album, All Now, which Bound describes as "sonically rich, full of moments of euphoria," and perform live on the show. You can hear it here. Atwood Magazine's Mitch Mosk calls All Now "the strongest releases of the band’s career ... utterly enchanting—a catchy, cohesive, and many-sided listening experience with endless returns."

"The Staves' songs are sweet and melancholic, often belying the depth of emotion and subtleness of their lyrics," says Monocle on Culture host Robert Bound. "Their music manages to be both gentle and punchy, driven home by their perfect, perfect harmonies." The duo is on the podcast to discuss their new album, All Now, which Bound describes as "sonically rich, full of moments of euphoria," and perform live on the show. You can hear the episode here via Spotify and Apple Podcasts:

"Their first record as a duo is one of the strongest releases of the band’s career," Atwood Magazine's Mitch Mosk writes of All Now. "A product of passion and perseverance, soul-searching and self-knowing, 'All Now' is an emboldened, cathartic release that sees The Staves basking in beautiful folk rock pastures as they take on the world ... All Now is utterly enchanting—a catchy, cohesive, and many-sided listening experience with endless returns." You can read his interview with the band here.

All Now, produced by John Congleton (Sharon Van Etten, Angel Olsen), marks the band’s debut album as the duo of Jessica and Camilla Staveley-Taylor, following their sister Emily’s departure. After the February 2021 release of their album Good Woman, the band—like everyone—was forced to sit with their thoughts. Struggling after two years of deep solitude and pain, The Staves did what they know how to do best: they got back to writing with the idea of going back to basics and focusing almost solely on each other and their guitars as a starting point. You can get the album and hear it here.

The Staves kick off a North American headline tour at Union Stage in Washington, DC, on April 7, with shows in New York City, Cambridge, Toronto, Chicago, Minneapolis, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. See below for details and tickets, or visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    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.
