    Vagabon (aka Lætitia Tamko)'s self-titled Nonesuch debut album was written and produced entirely by Tamko. In this follow up to her breakout debut, Infinite Worlds, guitar-driven melodies are largely absent, and in their place are songs buoyed by hybridized analog and digital arrangements. Grounded by Tamko's expressive voice and knack for unique melodies, the album flits between genres, never lingering too long on one particular sensibility. Pre-order to download the track "Flood" and get an exclusive autographed print.

  • ¡Spangled!—a collaboration between Guatemalan-born singer-songwriter Gaby Moreno and American musician, songwriter, arranger, and producer Van Dyke Parks—celebrates the migration of song across the Americas. The ten-song set spans more than a century, including a bolero from Panama, a bossa nova from Brazil, a song by Moreno, Trinidadian songwriter David Rudder's "The Immigrants," and an elegiac ballad from the Southwest US: Ry Cooder, John Hiatt, and Jim Dickinson’s “Across the Borderline,” performed with Cooder and Jackson Browne. Pre-order to download those two songs now.

  • Joshua Redman and Brooklyn Rider perform on Sun on Sand—eight compositions from a suite by composer Patrick Zimmerli—along with bassist Scott Colley and drummer Satoshi Takeishi. Each song in the suite, which premiered at London’s Wigmore Hall in 2014, represents a different expression of light. Pre-order to download the track "Between Dog and Wolf" (a French expression for dusk) now.

  • Rachael & Vilray—the debut album by Lake Street Dive singer-songwriter Rachael Price and composer, singer, and guitarist Vilray—features ten original songs by Vilray, plus two covers from the era that inspired him: Cuban composer Pedro Junco Jr.'s 1943 "Nosotros" and Drake/Atler's "I Love the Way You're Breaking My Heart," first popularized by Peggy Lee. "The voices of acoustic duo Rachael & Vilray are magical enough on their own," says Chronogram, "but when they blend in song the results are utterly sublime." Pre-order to download the song "Alone at Last" now and get an exclusive, limited-edition print of a painting made for the occasion by Hannah Rawe and autographed by Rachael and Vilray.

    Portuguese fado singer Carminho's album Maria is her most personal album. Its title is her given first name and a name in Portugal that's both traditional and a popular choice among contemporary young parents, as fado is both part of a tradition and belongs to today's world. Carminho, who wrote many of the lyrics and songs and produced the record herself, for the first time, considers it a dialogue between herself and two fado singers who blazed a trail for her: Beatriz da Conceição and Teresa Siqueira (her mother). London Jazz News calls it "a beautifully realized, remarkably varied yet uniformly gorgeous album." Pre-order to download the tracks "O Menino e a Cidade" and "Estrela" now.

    The triple-LP vinyl edition of Brad Mehldau's Nonesuch Records debut album, Live in Tokyo, first released on the album's 15th anniversary in 2019, was made in partnership with Run Out Groove, pressed on 180-gram vinyl, and comprises the original album's eight tracks plus an additional seven tracks previously available only on the Japanese edition. "Few pianists can match Brad Mehldau when it comes to cross-fertilizing jazz, classical, and rock," said JazzTimes. "The same applies for technique, taste and intellectual curiosity. All of those qualities are on display [here]."

  • Ma
    September 13, 2019

    Devendra Banhart's album Ma bursts with tender, autobiographical vignettes, displaying a shift from the sonic experimentation of his previous albums to an intricate, captivating story-telling and emotional intimacy. Banhart favors organic sounds to accompany his voice and guitar, the arrangements bolstered by strings, woodwinds, brass, and keyboards. The album was produced by his longtime musical compadre Noah Georgeson and includes a background vocal from Cate Le Bon and a duet with Banhart's mentor, muse, and dear friend Vashti Bunyan. Pre-order to download three tracks now.

  • Kronos Quartet’s groundbreaking 2002 collaboration with composer Terry Riley, Sun Rings, is available in full for the first time. Riley incorporates into his composition "space sounds" (plasma waves) that NASA had collected from the Voyager probes, as well as a choir that represents, in his words, "the voice of humanity in its struggle to understand the meaning of our place in this unfathomable universe." Musical America calls it "a spaceship that faces ahead into the planets but also looks back toward its starting point on Earth." Pre-order to download the track "Beebopterismo" now.
