    Listen: Yola, Mavis Staples Talk on Spotify's New 'Duet' Podcast

    Yola and Mavis Staples are the guests on the inaugural episode of Spotify's new Duet podcast. The two share some favorite tunes—by Dolly Parton, Aretha Franklin, Al Green, Barry White, Curtis Mayfield, and Rotary Connection—and discuss the impact the music has had on them in their lives, how it has helped them in difficult times. You can listen to the conversation and music in the episode on Spotify here.

    "Yola's music exists on the border of a few different genres—country, soul, even a little disco," says host Matthew Boll, "but her voice, that's what hits you. It's unforgettable. It somehow feels both timeless and original." You can hear her Dan Auerbach–produced debut album, Walk Through Fire, released on Easy Eye Sound and Nonesuch Records, here.

The video was directed by Tim Hardiman and filmed at Jimmy Duck Holmes’ Blue Front Café, the oldest active juke joint in America. You can watch it here. "We were honored to play alongside Kenny Brown and Eric Deaton, who are a direct link to R.L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough," says Dan Auerbach. "This is the Mississippi hill country sound that Pat and I first bonded over.”

    Sam Gendel’s album DRM, released by Nonesuch digitally last October, is now available on vinyl. The follow-up to his March 2020 Nonesuch debut, Satin Doll, DRM features Gendel’s solo musical experiments with vintage instruments such as a forty-year-old Electro Harmonix DRM32 drum machine, antique synthesizers, and a sixty-year-old nylon-string guitar—accompanied by his voice. Gendel says: “I’m imagining people listening to [it] and thinking, ‘What the hell is this?’, like they’d just encountered some sailing ship in the sky.”
