    William Brittelle "Spiritual America" Album Release Event to Take Place in Brooklyn on June 25

    In celebration of the recent release of William Brittelle's new album, Spiritual America, on New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records, a walk-about concert and listening party called Forbidden Colors will be held at Public Records in Brooklyn, New York, on Tuesday, June 25, at 7pm ET. The event is named for a piece—the video for which can be seen below—on Spiritual America, an album on which Wye Oak, Brooklyn Youth Chorus, and the Metropolis Ensemble perform a genre-defying electro-acoustic song cycle written by Brittelle. Selections from the album will be played on the Public Records sound system between live performances by various artists, as will pieces from État, the new album from Brittelle's label mate, Daniel Wohl.

    For additional details and tickets to the event, visit dice.fm.

    PopMatters calls Spiritual America an "excellent" album that "defies traditional genre conventions through fusing elements of traditional classical, electronic music, and shredding rock guitar through a narrative of crisis and faith." To pick up a copy, head to iTunes, Bandcamp, Amazon, and the Nonesuch Store, and listen on Spotify and Apple Music.

    Daniel Wohl's État was called "beautiful" by NPR's Tom Huizenga. "I think he's really one of the most imaginative electroacoustic composer-musicians working today." To pick up a copy, head to iTunes, Bandcamp, and the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include an instant download of the complete album. It can also be heard on Spotify and Apple Music.

    Vagabon (aka Lætitia Tamko)'s new album, All The Women In Me, is due September 27, 2019, on Nonesuch Records. The follow up to her breakout debut, Infinite Worlds, it is an artistic leap for Tamko, who wrote and produced the entire album. Guitar-driven melodies are largely absent, replaced by hybridized analog and digital arrangements. Pre-order in the Nonesuch Store—on limited blue vinyl, black vinyl, CD, and cassette—to download the track "Flood Hands" now and get an exclusive, limited-edition autographed print. Vagabon will tour this fall with headlining shows and a run with Angel Olsen.

    Composer-performer Daniel Wohl's album État is out now on New Amsterdam and Nonesuch Records. The album features electro-acoustic pieces written by Wohl, and includes guest performances by Poliça's Channy Leaneagh with co-production by Son Lux's Ryan Lott and mmph. État, recorded with members of yMusic and the Calder Quartet, explores new dimensions of production. It's "a potent dreamscape" from "a sorcerer of electroacoustic sonorities," says NPR, which named it one of the Top 6 Albums Out This Week.
