The Magnetic Fields
Quickies

Stephin Merritt’s The Magnetic Fields has always been a project upon which to launch a good concept, and Quickies is no different. Consisting entirely of short, simple and sub-three-minute songs, it’s a 28-track collection which will be released physically over five 7” vinyls, available together as a box set.

Wilco
Yankee Hotel Foxtrot

Yankee Hotel Foxtrot was the Wilco album that Warners refused to release so the band put it up for free on their website and it was eventually picked up by Warners subsidiary Nonesuch. The mad world of corporate record labels notwithstanding it has long been seen as perhaps their greatest achievement to date taking their Americana-like sound and running with it to new and adventurous sonic areas no doubt assisted by producer Jim O'Rourke.

Devendra Banhart
Ma

Such a breath of fresh air when he burst onto the scene in the early Noughties, freak-folk legend Devendra Banhart is now on his tenth studio album and shows no signs of stopping. Ma is sung in Spanish and Portuguese, and features backing vocals from Cate Le Bon and a closing duet with the iconic Vashti Bunyan.

Kronos Quartet
Terry Riley: Sun Rings

'Sun Rings' is a piece by Terry Riley which was performed by Kronos Quartet and.... space? On their travels Voyagers 1 and 2 record a number of unearthly (literally) sounds, which inspired Riley to compose this piece for strings and a choir. The message driving it is one of unity, captured by the track title 'One Earth, One People, One Love'.

David Byrne
Grown Backwards (Deluxe Edition)

Grown Backwards was David Byrne’s first for Nonesuch Records. It was originally released in the weird non-vinyl times that were 2004, so this reissue, 15 years later, is the first time it’s been released on vinyl. It sees Byrne being uncharacteristically personal and emotional. It includes a duet with Tropicalia star Caetano Veloso and a bunch of extra tracks. Double LP on Nonesuch.

Shye Ben Tzur, Jonny Greenwood & Rajasthan Express
Junun

Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest film, Tunun, impressionistically documents the recording sessions that led to this album. Jonny Greenwood, with his Radiohead pedigree, will attract the most attention, but it is qawwali group Rajasthan Express and composer Shye Ben Tzur who are the real centre of this collection. Fantastic devotional performances, highly recommended. On Nonesuch.

Fleet Foxes
Helplessness Blues

CD and double-vinyl re-issue of Helplessness Blues, the sprawling second album from indie/folk sensations Fleet Foxes and which had the unenviable task of following one of the most beloved debuts of the Noughties and whose recording triggered a lengthy hiatus. Also the last Fleet Foxes album to include a certain Mr Josh Tillman... 

Fleet Foxes
First Collection 2006 – 2009

Fleet Foxes are having a little party, and to help them celebrate the 10th anniversary of their critically acclaimed eponymous debut album they are releasing a tasty box set: First Collection 2006-2009. It will include a 12” vinyl LP of their first album plus two 10” vinyl EPs - Sun Giant EP and Fleet Foxes EP the latter having only ever been available as a CD-R. A fourth record will contain eight b-sides and rarities. There will also be a 32-page book and some other bits and bobs. Also available on CD, but in CD size. It’s a limited edition release so get your skates on Fleet Foxes fans! Box Set on Nonesuch.

Laurie Anderson & Kronos Quartet
Landfall

Substantial collaboration between musician and spoken word storyteller Laurie Anderson and San Francisco’s Kronos Quartet. Landfall, a multimedia project inspired by Anderson’s experience of Hurricane Sandy, blends skillful instrumentation with her powerful spoken word descriptions of the storm. On Nonesuch.

True Stories, A Film By David Byrne: The Complete Soundtrack

You probably know the eighties Talking Heads album True Stories, but you might not know David Byrne’s directorial debut film of the same name. True Stories the movie has a soundtrack of its own: some tracks from the Heads album are replicated, but there is also material involving Terry Allen, Kronos Quartet and Meredith Monk! This Complete Soundtrack release includes rare and unreleased tracks, all in one comprehensive package at last.

Steve Reich
Pulse / Quartet

Steve Reich’s office has a huge portrait of Steve Reich looking down benevolently on Steve Reich. Which is kind of like a Steve Reich piece, feeding off itself in a continuous loop. Where Quartet is full of energy and all over the place harmonically, Pulses is a more quiet work - especially for Reich standards. The end-result entrancingly oscillates between two poles - as we've come to expect from the minimal music mastermind.

Devendra Banhart
Ape In Pink Marble

A really nice, delicate release from freak-folk mainstay Devendra Banhart, although I think he might have toned down the ‘freakiness’ by now. Ape In Pink Marble is an LA production, imbued with the sunny attitudes of sweet sweet California. Released on Nonesuch: the LP edition comes with a bonus poster.

David Byrne
American Utopia

David Byrne returns with his first solo record since 2004, American Utopia features an extensive list of collaborators that include Oneohtrix Point Never, Jam City, Happa, Sampha as well as production from Brian Eno and Rodaidh McDonald. Modern producers with Byrne’s inimitable positivity, these are set to be some modern classics.

Jonny Greenwood
Inherent Vice - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

There’s more to Jonny Greenwood than meets the fringe-draped eye. As well as a guitar extraordinaire, he is also a fantastic composer, working with Paul Thomas Anderson as he has in the past on the Inherant Vice Soundtrack - the grimy looking film featuring Joaquin Phoenix and, weirdly, Joanna Newsom. Double vinyl.

Jonny Greenwood
Phantom Thread (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Here we are again with the dream team combo of super-director Paul Thomas Anderson and soundtracker Jonny Greenwood, who has proven to be an extremely capable avant-leaning orchestral composer over his previous three Anderson soundtracks. Phantom Thread is remarkably lush and rich, as befits the film’s glamourous period setting. Released by Nonesuch.

The Magnetic Fields
50 Song Memoir

Another bit of music-hall high-conceptitude here from Stephin Merritt & Co. There’s a song here for each of Merritt’s 50 years on Earth, with writing begun on his 50th birthday. Not quite 69 but age inevitably brings a slowing down of productivity. Despite the shift from storytelling or meta-songwriting to a more autobiographical lyrical style there’s nothing here to throw long-term fans and enough wit, guile and craft to charm plenty of new ones.

Chris Thile
Thanks For Listening

Chris Thile is the host of radio show A Prairie Home Companion, wherein he writes and performs a Song of the Week, within the week, each week, with a house band and whatever guest was on the show helping out. Thanks For Listening presents ten of the best, freshly re-recorded for this release. Guests include Gaby Moreno and Sarah Jarosz. Out via Nonesuch.

Rostam
Half-Light

Rostam (Batmanglij, also known as Boys Like Us) is most known for being in Vampire Weekend, as well as working with Frank Ocean, Solange and The Walkmen. Half-Light is his debut solo album, filled with cinematic electronic pop that pulls from the reflective, from neon synthetic charm to choral rises and timpani led percussion.

Conor Oberst
Salutations

Bright Eyes' lead quiverer Conor Oberst's last album Ruminations was a a home produced, stark work featuring just his own voice, guitar and piano. He still wanted to record with a band though and so headed down to Malibu to record Salutations with a full rocking band in tow. This includes band versions of all the Ruminations tracks plus seven additional songs.

Fleet Foxes
Fleet Foxes

Fleet Foxes eponymous debut album was released to great critical acclaim in 2008. Big things were expected after the release of the Sun Giant EP and the band duly delivered. By the end of 2008, they were the band on everyone’s lips and the album was appearing on critics Albums of the Year lists on both sides of the Atlantic, more often than not at number 1.

Fleet Foxes
Crack-Up

Fleet Foxes like to take their time with this just their third album since their 2008 debut. They also spawned Father John Misty onto the world but let's not blame them for that. This meticulous approach to their song craft generally yields good results as was proved by the excellent 'Helplessness Blues'. Expect a dense, lush and ambitious album, lead track the eight minute ‘Third of May / Ōdaigahara’ is certainly all of these things.

Kronos Quartet
Folk Songs

Kronos Quartet, the go-to ensemble for crossovers of contemporary and indie music as well as regular interpreters of Steve Reich et al’s work, here collaborate with Olivia Chaney, Rhiannon Giddens, Sam Amidon and Natalie Merchant for a set of Folk Songs: traditional numbers, with fresh contemporary arrangements.

Sam Amidon
The Following Mountain

Sam Amidon’s new album is unusual for him, in that every single song is an original composition of his. As well as regular collaborator and mighty musical all-rounder Shahzad Ismaily, our man Sam has managed to snare original 60’s-era free jazz drummer Milford Graves as a collaborator on The Following Mountain, so the standards are extremely high. CD and vinyl editions on Nonesuch.

Chris Thile & Brad Mehldau
Chris Thile & Brad Mehldau

Chris Thile, who plays mandolin and also sings, joined up with the pianist Brad Mehldau a few years ago for a series of shows in which they played both original songs and familiar covers in a beautifully sensitive style. This eponymous album features studio recordings of these excellent pieces: what a pair of absolute pros. Double LP / double CD editions, on Nonesuch.

Nico Muhly & Teitur
Confessions

Nico Muhly is a busy young modern-classical composer and performer isn’t he? Here he is now, rocking up on Nonesuch in a new collaboration with songwriter Teitur. With song lyrics derived from obscure youtube videos and the music scored for a baroque ensemble, Confessions probably qualifies as a unique record I should think?

Kronos Quartet
Pieces of Africa

Pieces Of Africa finds the go-to indie-classical string quartet supreme, the Kronos Quartet, taking on commissions from eight African composers. With the string quartet being arguably one of the most archetypal formats of the Western classical tradition, it is wonderful to hear it pushed in new directions on these ingenious compositions. Double LP on Nonesuch.

Conor Oberst
Ruminations

Conor Oberst, aka Mr. Bright Eyes himself, has a new album of solo work. Ruminations was made according to the classic technique of sealing oneself away alone during the winter, and is a sparse affair involving Oberst and no-one else at all. Ruminations comes out on Nonesuch, with a nice poster slipped into the LP edition.

As a prequel to their debut album, ‘Yours, Dreamily’, multi instrumentalists The Arcs release their second 7’’ single ‘Outta My Mind’, including an otherwise unreleased track, B side ‘My Mind’. Mixed and recorded in various locations over a two week period of informal sessions, the tracks have a infectiously spontaneous feeling of urgency and motion.

Tyondai Braxton
HIVE1

Available on CD vinyl LP on Nonesuch. Former Battles frontman Tyondai Braxton is probably fed up of being described as such, after all he has many more “strings to his bow”. Having had many compositions played all over the world he has returned with his first solo outing since 2009. Whilst Central Market and his earlier work were vocal and string arrangement focus, Hive1 is a much more synthetic beast.

Wilco
Alpha Mike Foxtrot: Rare Tracks 1994-2014

Wilco have never been particularly good at hiding their so-called rarities away, half of their fan-base having already been treated to the stellar, suffocatingly intimate early versions of Yankee Hotel Foxtrot songs. Here, though, the band leave another offering: Alpha Mike Foxtrot collates songs they've been commissioned to record for cover albums and film scores, and also throws in some of the band's quintessential b-sides, letting us live in an parallel universe where alt-country is still going strong.

There Will Be Blood (Music From The Motion Picture)

To celebrate the 11th anniversary (possibly) of Jonny Greenwood’s score to Paul Thomas-Anderson’s cinematic Oscar-winning masterpiece, There Will Be Blood, Nonesuch are making it available on vinyl for the first time. The Radiohead guitarist composed the score inspired by the scenery rather than the story. It is played by the BBC Concert Orchestra led by Robert Ziegler, the Emperor Quartet, with cellist Caroline Dale and pianist Michael Dussek. 140g LP on Nonesuch.
