    Vagabon's Self-Titled Sophomore Album Now on Vinyl

    Vagabon (aka Lætitia Tamko)’s self-titled sophomore album, released digitally and on CD on Nonesuch Records last month, is now available on vinyl. To pick up a copy, head to your local record store, Amazon, Bandcamp, and the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include a download of the complete album and a limited-edition autographed print while they last; the album can also be heard on Spotify, Apple Music, and other streaming services.

    "Vagabon chronicles a life enriched, and made complicated, by stepping into new contexts," writes the New Yorker's Hua Hsu. "Her singing offers structure to textures that are ethereal, moody, and ever-shifting... Each song on Vagabon feels like a small world." "Her songs embrace mixed, elusive emotions," writes the New York Times's Jon Pareles: "longing and ambivalence, displacement and stability, seeking a home and leaving it behind, confronting fears and searching for hope."

    "With a new album, and a dramatically different sound," says Pitchfork, "Laetitia Tamko wants to be nothing less than the best-and she's putting in the work to make it happen." The new album is "a cosmic journey through synthetic sounds, lush orchestral suites and lyrical self-realization," says Paste. "The result is an ambitious album overflowing with generosity and empathy, warm in production and rich in theme."

    Clash gives this "indie-pop masterpiece" a nine out of ten, calling it "simply captivating from start to finish ... A voice as captivating as hers is rare, combine it with ultimate creative freedom and then it results in this truly gorgeous sound ... The work of an immensely talented melodic mastermind, Laetitia Tamko's second album touches on the magical."

    Vagabon is currently touring North America as special guest of Angel Olsen, performing in Detroit, Toronto, Montreal, Boston, and Brooklyn in the week ahead. The tour heads west next month. See below for details and tickets, and visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Composer and multi-instrumentalist Jeff Parker's Suite for Max Brown is out now via a newly formed partnership between International Anthem and Nonesuch Records. The album, named for and dedicated to Parker's mother, features nine original songs as well as "Gnarciss," an interpretation of Joe Henderson's "Black Narcissus," and John Coltrane's "After the Rain." Parker plays the majority of the instruments on the record. "The veteran guitarist has created an effortlessly detailed album, full of tradition and experimentation that spans generations," says Pitchfork. "It lives at the vanguard of new jazz music."

    The original cast recording for Dave Malloy's musical Octet—recorded live during Signature Theatre's world premiere production—is now available on CD, following its digital release late last year. Featuring a score for an a cappella chamber choir and an original libretto inspired by internet comment boards, scientific debates, religious texts, and Sufi poetry, Octet explores addiction and nihilism within the messy context of twenty-first century technology. "The most original and topical musical of the year," says the New York Times; "the sublime a cappella chamber opera is a portrait in song of perhaps the greatest David and Goliath struggle of our time."
