Devendra Banhart stopped by New York City public radio station WFUV following the release of his new album, Ma, in September. He performed three songs from the new album and spoke with host Alisa Ali for an FUV Live session. You can now watch the live performances of the album tracks "Taking a Page," "Carolina," and "October 12" from the session below, and listen to the show on the air tonight on 90.7 FM in New York and online now at wfuv.org.



To pick up a copy of Ma, which the Los Angeles Times calls "sublimely understated, border-blurring folk rock," head to your local record store, Amazon, iTunes, and the Nonesuch Store; the album can also be heard on Spotify and Apple Music.

The North American leg of Banhart's tour concludes with concerts in Montreal, Boston, Brooklyn, DC, and Philadelphia this week. In the New Year, he takes the show to Europe and the UK. For details and tickets, see below and visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

Banhart also spoke with Pitchfork for its The Song I Wish I Wrote series. His song choice: Joan Armatrading's "Willow." "I think this is the perfect song," he says. Hear why:

    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."

    Early James premiered the music video for “It Doesn't Matter Now,” a new song off his upcoming debut album, Singing for My Supper, via Billboard. "The subject matter for this song is pretty heavy," says director Tim Hardiman. "I felt there needed to be some aggression on screen but didn't want it to play out like a typical break up. For some reason, Sideshow Bennie, whom I worked with several years ago, popped in my head. I looked him up and learned he was now working with a sidekick, Anna Fiametta. When I read how they met, I thought it was a funny story that would fit the song." You can watch the video here.
