    Thomas Bartlett and Nico Muhly Release "Peter Pears: Ceremonial Music Remixes" on Nonesuch

    Longtime friends and collaborators Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman) and Nico Muhly's new two-song digital release, Peter Pears: Ceremonial Music Remixes, is out now on Nonesuch Records. It includes reimagined versions of two tracks from their 2018 album, Peter Pears: Balinese Ceremonial Music: "Balthasar" remixed by E*vax (of Ratatat) and "Eusebius" remixed by Kid Koala. You can download the songs on iTunes and in the Nonesuch Store and listen below via Spotify and Apple Music, or on Amazon.

    Peter Pears: Balinese Ceremonial Music, which was released on Nonesuch in May, features nine songs written by Bartlett and Muhly plus three gamelan transcriptions by ethnomusicologist Colin McPhee that inspired the songs. Drowned in Sound says it's "an exceptional album ... simultaneously tense and light, dramatic and calming, an originality which few albums can fully lay claim to." The Irish Times called it a "slow-burning beauty." Télérama said the album comprises "ethereal and singular electro-pop songs with a unique and addictive dreamlike quality." And Radio New Zealand said: "It's impossible not to be carried away and indeed bewitched ... mysterious, enchanting music."

    To pick up a copy of the album, visit your local music shop, iTunes, Amazon, and the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include a download of the complete album at checkout; the album can also be heard on Spotify and Apple Music.

    Ry Cooder's critically acclaimed album Chávez Ravine, first released on Nonesuch Records in 2005, will make its vinyl debut on September 6. With a cast of legendary Chicano musicians, Cooder recounts the story of how a Mexican-American community was razed to make way for L.A.'s Dodger Stadium. "A remarkable song cycle," said Rolling Stone, "a brilliant and flavorful film-noir history lesson." The two-LP vinyl edition was remastered from the original high-resolution source files and pressed on 140-gram vinyl. The set comes in a gatefold tip-on jacket with a twenty-page, full-color booklet. It is available to pre-order now in the Nonesuch Store.
