    Punch Brothers' New Five-Song EP "Ahoy!" Out Now

    Today marks the release of Punch Brothers’ new five-song EP, Ahoy!, on Nonesuch Records. Recorded during the Nashville sessions for their critically acclaimed 2012 album Who’s Feeling Young Now?, these tracks also were produced by Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Tom Waits, Modest Mouse). The Los Angeles Times said Who’s Feeling Young Now?’s “rich and evocative tracks capture a white-hot musical mind coming into his own and collaborating with stellar peers,” and Rolling Stone said, “The acoustic framework dazzles—wild virtuosity used for more than just virtuosity.”

    This EP includes songs by Josh Ritter (“Another New World”), Gillian Welch and David Rawlings (“Down Along the Dixie Line”), Punch Brothers (“Squirrel of Possibility”), and Mclusky (“Icarus Smicarus”), along with one traditional tune, arranged by Punch Brothers (“Moonshiner”). You can listen to the band's take on "Another New World" below.

    To pick up a copy of Ahoy!, head to the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include instant downloads of the complete EP at checkout. It is also available to purchase there as MP3s and FLAC lossless files.

    Punch Brothers' recent tour stop at Queen's Hall in Edinburgh earns perfect five-star reviews from both the Scotsman, which says the "magic ingredient was the incorrigible joy that shone through the entire dazzling performance," and the Herald, which exclaims that "this was the sort of event for which the term gig of the year was coined."

    The band brings its UK tour to a close with performances at London's Islington Assembly Hall tonight and The Tunnels in Bristol tomorrow, after which they head to the Netherlands and Belgium for the Crossing Border festival. They kick off the next US leg of their tour just after Thanksgiving with a performance at the Chan Shun Concert Hall in Vancouver. For details and ticket links, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    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.”

    The Black Keys' tenth studio album, Delta Kream, is due May 14 via Nonesuch Records. The record celebrates the band’s roots, featuring eleven Mississippi hill country blues standards that they have loved since they were teenagers, before they were a band, including songs by R. L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough, among others. Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney recorded Delta Kream at Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound studio in Nashville; they were joined by musicians Kenny Brown and Eric Deaton, long-time members of the bands of blues legends including R. L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough. The album takes its name from William Eggleston’s iconic Mississippi photograph that is on its cover.
