    Sam Gendel's New Album, "DRM," Due on Vinyl April 16 on Nonesuch Records

    Sam Gendel's new album, DRM, which was released digitally on October 1, is due on vinyl on April 16, 2021, available to pre-order here. This Thursday, October 22, at 12pm EDT, Gendel will be commenting and answering questions as a one-time, single supercut of all fourteen videos for the album—one for each track, all directed by Marcella Cytrynowicz—premieres on the Nonesuch Records YouTube channel. You can set a reminder and join in then here.

    On DRM, Sam Gendel performs solo musical experiments with vintage instruments—a forty-year-old Electro Harmonix DRM32 drum machine, antique synthesizers, a sixty-year-old nylon-string guitar—accompanied by his voice. The album includes one cover song: Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road,” which Gendel interprets as an instrumental, playing the melody on an old German analogue synthesizer.

    Rob Mazurek's new album with Exploding Star Orchestra, Dimensional Stardust, is out now via International Anthem / Nonesuch Records. Mazurek arranged his pieces for eleven musicians, including Jeff Parker, and commissioned his long-time lyrics collaborator Damon Locks to draft original texts for the songs. The album recalls an array of Mazurek’s symphonic­ influences, from Béla Bartók to Morton Feldman to Gil Evans to Sun Ra to Pedro Santos to Bill Dixon to The Art Ensemble of Chicago. Opting to focus on tight ensemble orchestration over passages of open improvisation, he distills an orchestra of explosive improvisers into a graceful group exercise in melodic minimalism.
