Excerpt

Paul Thomas Anderson will give his new documentary Junun its Los Angeles premiere on Sunday, November 15, at The Theatre at Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles, where he had given a pre-release screening of his film Inherent Vice. This past spring, Anderson joined Jonny Greenwood, Shye Ben Tzur, and a group of Indian musicians as they recorded the album Junun in a makeshift studio at Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur. The film chronicles the making of that album. The film is currently streaming on MUBI. The album, due November 20 on Nonesuch, is now available to pre-order.

Prior to its release in late 2014, Paul Thomas Anderson's film Inherent Vice screened at The Theatre at Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles. On Sunday, November 15, at 7 PM, the filmmaker returns to the venue for the Los Angeles premiere of his new documentary, Junun. For tickets, visit acehotel.com.

In spring of 2015, Anderson joined Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood, Israeli musician Shye Ben Tzur, and the Rajasthan Express, a group of musicians from across the Indian sub-continent, on a trip to Rajasthan in Northwestern India. The group was hosted by the Maharaja of Jodhpur at Mehrangarh Fort. What resulted was an intimate, eclectic, multi-cultural sonic journey. Junun (or, "the madness of love") chronicles the making of the album by the same name, recorded in a makeshift studio at the fort. The east-west meeting of musical minds has been heralded by the Hollywood Reporter as "a transporting film that places us right there in the room, living and breathing a singular artistic experience."

After its world premiere screening at the New York Film Festival on October 8, Junun had its exclusive online premiere on subscription streaming platform MUBI the following day, where it continues to stream till November 7. The album Junun will be released by Nonesuch on November 20 and is available to pre-order on iTunes and on CD and vinyl in the Nonesuch Store with an instant download of the album track "Roked."

    The first recordings of Steve Reich’s Runner (2016) and Music for Ensemble and Orchestra (2018), performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and conducted by Susanna Mälkki, are out now digitally and on CD; vinyl is due December 2. The New York Times calls Runner “a calmly luminous orchestral piece with the pulsating, propulsive rhythms that animate much of Mr. Reich’s music.” The San Francisco Chronicle says that Music for Ensemble and Orchestra “is a beautiful and dramatically charged masterpiece, but its impact goes even further than that.”

    Seven special editions of Wilco's landmark 2002 album Yankee Hotel Foxtrot are out now. The now-classic record has been remastered and is available in each set. The Super Deluxe version has eleven vinyl LPs and one CD—including demos, drafts, and instrumentals, charting the making of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot—plus a live 2002 concert recording and a September 2001 radio performance and interview. That box set includes 82 previously unreleased music tracks as well as a new book featuring an interview with Jeff Tweedy, Glenn Kotche, and Jim O’Rourke; an in-depth essay by journalist/author Bob Mehr; and previously unseen photos of the band making the album in their Chicago studio. You can take a look inside in an unboxing video here. Pitchfork gives the set a perfect 10: "A sprawling new box set full of demos and alternate takes suggests a dazzling array of paths the Chicago group might have taken on their masterpiece."
