    Watch: Nickel Creek Performs on "Live From Here"
    Live From Here

    Chris Thile had a few familiar faces—and voices—join him as guests on his public radio show Live From Here broadcast from The Wiltern in Los Angeles over the weekend. Sara Watkins shared vocal duties throughout the show; Thile's fellow Punch Brothers Gabe Witcher and Chris Eldridge were in the house band; and Nickel Creek—Thile, Sara Watkins, and Sean Watkins—reunited to perform three songs: "21st of May," from the band's 2014 Nonesuch album, A Dotted Line; the earlier instrumental "Scotch and Chocolate"; and, as part of the show's birthday salute, Sam Phillips's "Where Is Love Now?," which Nickel Creek also performed on A Dotted Line. You can watch all three performances below and listen to the complete episode, with guests Andrew Bird, Jenny Lewis, and Sarah Silverman, at livefromhere.org

    To pick up a copy of A Dotted Line, head to iTunes, Amazon, or the Nonesuch Store; and you can listen on Spotify and Apple Music.

    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.
