As part of the year-long celebration of Nonesuch Records' 60th anniversary, we launched Nonesuch Selects, a video series in which artists stop by the Nonesuch office, pick some of their favorites from the music library, and share a few words on their choices. Following the first five videos, by Mary Halvorson, Timo Andres, Vagabon, Tigran Hamasyan, and Sam Amidon (all of which you can watch here), The Staves' Jessica and Camilla Stavely-Taylor—whose new album, All Now, was released last month and who conclude their US tour this week—stopped by and chose music by The Gipsy Kings, Emmylou Harris, Joachim Cooder, Steve Reich, and Nickel Creek. You can watch it below and subscribe to the Nonesuch Records YouTube channel for all the latest:

The Staves’ All Now, produced by John Congleton (Sharon Van Etten, Angel Olsen), marks the band’s debut album as the duo of Jessica and Camilla Staveley-Taylor, following their sister Emily’s departure. “There was a delayed reaction to trauma and these big changes out of your control,” Jess says of the period after the February 2021 release of their album Good Woman, as the band—like everyone—was forced to sit with their thoughts. Struggling after two years of deep solitude and pain, The Staves did what they know how to do best: they got back to writing with the idea of going back to basics and focusing almost solely on each other and their guitars as a starting point. You can get All Now and hear it here.

You can hear a playlist of music from The Staves' Nonesuch Selects on Spotify and Apple Music here. You can watch all of the Nonesuch Selects videos here.

    Rectangles and Circumstance, an album of ten songs co-written and performed by Caroline Shaw and Sō Percussion, is out now. Shaw and Sō's Eric Cha-Beach and Adam Sliwinski "sourced a group of nineteenth-century poems that shaped its expressive mode [and] ended up using verses by Christina Rosetti, Emily Brontë, Emily Dickinson, Gertrude Stein, and William Blake," says Sliwinski. "The lyrics on this album by members of the band contain wordplay that explores the same profound feelings explored by Blake and Dickinson.” Shaw and Sō co-produced the album with Grammy-winning engineer Jonathan Low (The National, Taylor Swift). Also out today is a video for the album track "Sing On," which you can watch here.
