    Watch: The Staves Perform NPR Tiny Desk (Home) Concert
    NPR Music

    The Staves perform an NPR Tiny Desk (Home) Concert of four songs from their new album, Good Woman—"Nothing's Gonna Happen," "Good Woman," "Satisfied," and "Waiting on Me to Change"—from the kitchen of their childhood home in Watford, England, for NPR Music. Sisters Emily, Jessica, and Camilla Staveley-Taylor are joined by guitarist and horn player Marcus Hamblett for the performance, which you can watch below. NPR Music's Bob Boilen says: "This stripped-down performance is a beautiful way to experience these sisters' gorgeous harmonies through their songs of strength, loss, life, and womanhood."

    Good Woman, The Staves' first album in six years, was written and recorded in a time of turmoil for the band—the end of relationships, the death of their beloved mother, and the birth of Emily’s first child. Produced by John Congleton, the album stands as a testament to strength—of sisters, mothers, daughters—to love, loss, and change. To trying to be a good woman. You can hear it here. You can hear a stripped-down version of the title track the band made with Hamblett and released last week, here. Tickets are on sale now for The Staves' North American tour in February and March here.

    Composer, singer, and instrumental polymath Ben LaMar Gay's new album, Open Arms to Open Us, is due November 19 on International Anthem / Nonesuch Records. Living up to NPR's claim that "there is no one universe for Ben LaMar Gay, he just sonic booms from one sound to another," he interweaves jazz, blues, ballads, R&B, raga, new music, nursery rhyme, Tropicália, two-step, hip-hop, and beyond in his most colorful and communicable work yet, an expression of his signature omni-genre, "Pan-Americana" brew. You can watch the video for the track "Sometimes I Forget How Summer Looks on You," featuring OHMME, here.
