The Staves recently stopped by the NPR offices in Washington, DC, while on tour to perform a Tiny Desk Concert for the NPR and NPR Music staff. "The Tiny Desk setting perfectly illuminates the power and talent of their voices," says NPR's Kara Frame. The set includes four songs from their new album, All Now: the title track, "Fundamental Memory," "I'll Never Leave You Alone," and "So Gracefully." You can watch it here:

During the pandemic, the band gave a Tiny Desk (Home) Concert of songs from their 2021 album, Good Woman, from the kitchen of their childhood home in Watford, England. You can watch that here.

All Now, produced by John Congleton (Sharon Van Etten, Angel Olsen), marks The Staves' 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 the album and hear it 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.
