    Punch Brothers, Laurie Anderson, Kronos Quartet Win Grammy Awards

    Congratulations to Punch Brothers, Laurie Anderson, and Kronos Quartet, all of whom won Grammy Awards in the 61st premiere ceremony held in Los Angeles on Sunday! The artists all won awards for their latest Nonesuch Records releases.

    Punch Brothers' new album, All Ashore, their first self-produced album, won the Grammy Award for Best Folk Album, the band's first Grammy Award. "It's a meditation on committed relationships in the present day," says Chris Thile, "particularly in the present climate." The Independent calls it "an album of rich instrumentation and understated beauty that reveals deeper nuances on each and every listen." The Boston Globe says it's "a deeply meaningful and downright gorgeous record." To pick up a copy of All Ashore, head to the Nonesuch Store now, and listen below.

    Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet's Landfall won the Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music / Small Ensemble Performance. This is the first Grammy Award for Laurie Anderson; Kronos Quartet previously won the Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music Performance for their 2003 album with Dawn Upshaw, Berg: Lyric Suite. Inspired by Anderson's experience of Hurricane Sandy, it is the first collaboration between the iconic storyteller/musician and the groundbreaking string quartet, who perform together on the recording. Landfall juxtaposes lush electronics and traditional strings by Kronos with Anderson's powerful descriptions of loss, from water-logged pianos to disappearing animal species to Dutch karaoke bars. The Washington Post calls it "riveting, gorgeous." To pick up a copy of Landfall, head to the Nonesuch Store now, and listen below.

    Composer and multi-instrumentalist Jeff Parker's Suite for Max Brown is out now via a newly formed partnership between International Anthem and Nonesuch Records. The album, named for and dedicated to Parker's mother, features nine original songs as well as "Gnarciss," an interpretation of Joe Henderson's "Black Narcissus," and John Coltrane's "After the Rain." Parker plays the majority of the instruments on the record. "The veteran guitarist has created an effortlessly detailed album, full of tradition and experimentation that spans generations," says Pitchfork. "It lives at the vanguard of new jazz music."

    Early James premiered the music video for “It Doesn't Matter Now,” a new song off his upcoming debut album, Singing for My Supper, via Billboard. "The subject matter for this song is pretty heavy," says director Tim Hardiman. "I felt there needed to be some aggression on screen but didn't want it to play out like a typical break up. For some reason, Sideshow Bennie, whom I worked with several years ago, popped in my head. I looked him up and learned he was now working with a sidekick, Anna Fiametta. When I read how they met, I thought it was a funny story that would fit the song." You can watch the video here.
