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:

    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.
