    RSD Drops to Feature Conor Oberst, Randy Newman Vinyl

    Record Store Day, the annual celebration of independent record stores, takes place over two RSD Drops on two Saturdays this year, June 12 and July 17, 2021, and included among the special releases on those days are new vinyl releases featuring titles from two artists familiar to readers of the Nonesuch Journal: Conor Oberst and Randy Newman.

    For the first RSD Drop, on June 12, comes Conor Oberst's Ruminations (Expanded Edition), a double-LP expanded remastered edition of his critically acclaimed 2016 solo album. Featuring five bonus tracks, four of which are previously unreleased, and an exclusive etching on side D, this release will be first available on black 140-gram vinyl, limited to 9,500 copies worldwide.

    For the second RSD Drop, on July 17, and exclusive to Record Store Day, there's Randy Newman’s Roll with the Punches: The Studio Albums (1979–2017), an eight-LP set of Newman’s latest seven studio albums—Born Again, Trouble in Paradise, Land of Dreams, Faust, Bad Love (on vinyl for the first time), Harps and Angels, and Dark Matter—on 140-gram vinyl, featuring original album jackets, lyric/credit sheets, and Faust demos. This collection will be limited to 3,000 copies worldwide.

    Brad Mehldau’s Variations on a Melancholy Theme is out now. The recording features the pianist/composer and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, which commissioned this orchestral version of the work—a theme and eleven variations plus a cadenza and postlude. The album also includes an encore, “Variations ‘X’ and ‘Y.'" "I imagine it as if Brahms woke up one day and had the blues," Mehldau says of the piece, which combines the classical form with jazz harmonies. "While the theme evokes melancholy, I let it be used as a springboard for other happy, wild, violent, and reckless emotions as the variations progress." You can watch a video for Variation 4 here.

    Rhiannon Giddens’ new album, They're Calling Me Home, recorded with Italian multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi, released earlier this year on CD and digital, is now on vinyl. Giddens and Turrisi, who both live in Ireland when they aren’t on tour, have been there since March 2020 due to the pandemic. The two expats found themselves drawn to the music of their native and adoptive countries of America, Italy, and Ireland during lockdown. Exploring the emotions brought up by the moment, Giddens and Turrisi decamped to Hellfire, a small studio on a working farm outside of Dublin, to record these songs over six days.
