    Video: Ben Folds & Nick Hornby Join Pomplamoose for VideoSong "Things You Think"

    Ben Folds and Nick Hornby have taken the collaborative spirit behind their forthcoming album, Lonely Avenue, and joined up with another duo, Jack Conte and Nataly Dawn, also known as Pomplamoose.

    Pomplamoose, the singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalists behind the smash series of YouTube VideoSongs have just posted their latest video, "Things You Think," featuring music by Folds and lyrics by Hornby, as do all the songs on Lonely Avenue. And as with all the Pomplamoose VideoSongs, what you see is what you hear (no lip-syncing for instruments or voice), and if you hear it, at some point you see it (no hidden sounds). This time around, Hornby contributes both lyrics and a rare vocal track. Read what Folds has to say about the writing and recording process and see some behind-the-scenes photos at benfolds.com.

    "Things You Think" is now available on iTunes and is also included as an exclusive bonus track on the iTunes deluxe version of Lonely Avenue. The album, available for pre-order there and in the Nonesuch Store with a limited-edition printed Folds/Hornby manuscript of the song "Picture Window," is out on Nonesuch on September 28.

    Multidisciplinary abstractivist and auteur Rob Mazurek will release a new album with Exploding Star Orchestra, Dimensional Stardust, via International Anthem / Nonesuch Records on November 20, 2020. The album track "A Wrinkle in Time Sets Concentric Circles Reeling" is available today; the video by Mikel Patrick Avery can be seen here. Mazurek arranged his pieces for eleven musicians 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.

    Brad Mehldau's new album, Suite: April 2020, is now available on CD and standard vinyl, following the release of the digital and limited-edition deluxe vinyl editions earlier this year. While sheltering at home with his family in the Netherlands during the COVID-19 pandemic this spring, Mehldau wrote twelve new songs about what he was experiencing; he was able to record them safely in an Amsterdam studio, along with interpretations of three tunes that mean a great deal to him. One thousand numbered and signed copies of the deluxe edition were sold, with a minimum of $90 from each sale donated to the Jazz Foundation of America’s COVID-19 Musician’s Emergency Fund. Brad Mehldau has several solo concerts in Europe ahead.
