    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.

    Mountain Man has released Mountain Man Sings Wilco, the latest in its series of cover singles, featuring its version of “You and I” from 2009’s Wilco (the album). “We have been band members, collaborators, friends and business partners for over 10 years now,” says the band, “so a song like ‘You and I,’ a celebration of creating a relationship that is totally unique and filled with mystery, seemed very appropriate.” Mountain Man will present a three-night COSMIC PROM of songs from the trio's collective catalog in Durham, NC, January 17–19.
