    Watch: The Staves, yMusic Perform "The Way Is Read" Live at Walker Art Center

    The English trio The Staves and NYC–based ensemble yMusic joined forces to create The Way Is Read, a twelve-song album stemming from their 2016 collaboration at Justin Vernon's Eaux Claires Festival, released late last year on Nonesuch Records. To celebrate the album's release, the musicians performed a number of sets together at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis in December. You can now watch their performance of the album's title track from the Walker below.

    "A wonderful album," the Sunday Times of London exclaimed in its review of The Way Is Read. "The fusion of the siblings interweaving harmonies and yMusic’s sonic chattering results in music that is equal parts Kate Bush, Joni Mitchell, Philip Glass and the Penguin Café Orchestra."

    To pick up a copy of The Way Is Read, head to iTunes and the Nonesuch Store, where vinyl orders include a download of the complete album at checkout, and listen on Spotify and Apple Music.

    The original cast recording for Dave Malloy's musical Octet—recorded live during Signature Theatre's world premiere production—is now available on CD, following its digital release late last year. Featuring a score for an a cappella chamber choir and an original libretto inspired by internet comment boards, scientific debates, religious texts, and Sufi poetry, Octet explores addiction and nihilism within the messy context of twenty-first century technology. "The most original and topical musical of the year," says the New York Times; "the sublime a cappella chamber opera is a portrait in song of perhaps the greatest David and Goliath struggle of our time."
