    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.

    Composer, singer, and instrumental polymath Ben LaMar Gay's new album, Open Arms to Open Us, is due November 19 on International Anthem / Nonesuch Records. Living up to NPR's claim that "there is no one universe for Ben LaMar Gay, he just sonic booms from one sound to another," he interweaves jazz, blues, ballads, R&B, raga, new music, nursery rhyme, Tropicália, two-step, hip-hop, and beyond in his most colorful and communicable work yet, an expression of his signature omni-genre, "Pan-Americana" brew. You can watch the video for the track "Sometimes I Forget How Summer Looks on You," featuring OHMME, here.

    Jeremy Denk’s Mozart Piano Concertos is now available on Nonesuch Records. Denk is joined by The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra for two Mozart concertos—No. 25 in C Major, K. 503 and No. 20 in D minor, K. 466—bookending the composer’s solo Rondo in A minor, K. 511. "Denk approaches everything with questing intelligence and energy," says the Observer. "His ornaments and cadenzas are full of wit and imagination, his ear for detail incisive and bracing. The excellent Saint Paul players match his variety and range of expression. As ever, Denk’s probing liner notes shed light, making an already engrossing album more than worth the purchase.”
