What seemed at first like a fun side project has turned into one of the year’s most replayable albums. Bonny Light Horseman — the new supergroup of Anais Mitchell, Eric D Johnson (Fruit Bats), and The National/Craig Finn/Hiss Golden Messenger/Josh Ritter collaborator (and now member of Paul Banks’ new band Muzz) Josh Kaufman — is steeped in centuries-old tradition, but they sound like a breath of fresh air. Their debut album is a mix of traditional folk songs (including the one they’re named after) and originals, and Bonny Light Horseman often drastically rework the traditionals and make them entirely their own. It’s an album that could appeal to fans of classic folk rock like Fairport Convention as much as to more recent indie folk acts like Fleet Foxes or Bon Iver (whose Justin Vernon appears on the album and released it on 37d03d, the label he runs with The National’s Aaron Dessner, who also played on the album), and it’s one of the most refreshing albums in this style to be released in recent memory.

Bonny Light Horseman — the indie folk super-trio featuring Anais Mitchell, Eric D Johnson (Fruit Bats), and Josh Kaufman — released one of the year’s best albums so far, followed by a great non-album single “Green Rocky Road,” and here’s another great song, which is the b-side to “Green Rocky Road.”

“No Time For Love Like Now” is the first song from Big Red Machine since the release of their critically acclaimed self-titled debut in 2018. Big Red Machine began as a collaboration between Aaron Dessner and Justin Vernon in 2008, and has grown into a multi-artist collective. When the group got together this year to begin working on new music, this particular song made a detour and ended up with Michael Stipe.

We’re so pleased to share this powerful new song from Michael Stipe & Big Red Machine, out now on 37d03d. The collaboration came about when Aaron Dessner shared a folder of new Big Red Machine music with Michael last year. No Time For Love Like Now was written last fall but when the reality of the COVID pandemic and social distancing and self-isolation descended the words felt like they were written about this time. The song features orchestration by Bryce Dessner,  Justin Vernon, Brad Cook, JT Bates, Thomas Barlett, Clarice Jensen and Yuki Numata Resnick also perform on the track. 

Michael Stipe & Big Red Machine have also designed a “No Time For Love Like Now” t-shirt and tote. All proceeds from the sales will go to the Equal Justice Initiative and COVID-19 Protest Relief Fund.

Written by Michael Stipe and Aaron Dessner, produced by Aaron Dessner, with Orchestration by Bryce Dessner, and lyrics by Michael Stipe

Trad-folk rabble rousers from a bevvy of renowned musicians with a keen understanding on the heritage of the genre and an enviable imagination for how to take it bounding into the future.

The astral folk outfit—comprised of Anaïs Mitchell, Eric D. Johnson, and Josh Kaufman— mixes the ancient, mystical medium of transatlantic traditional folk music with a contemporary, collective brush. the resulting album, bonny light horseman, is an elusive kind of sonic event: a bottled blend of lightning and synergy that will excite fans of multiple genres, eras, and ages. This is colourful, textured work: a lush and loving ode to the past with one eye fixed on the present. “There’s a palpable through line: a sense that the spirit of these ancient songs can be secured in the face of radical transformation”

The new song from Bonny Light Horseman, “Deep In Love,” began as a Fruit Bats sketch, until Josh Kaufman recognized its uncanny (and unplanned) similarity to a traditional tune by that name. available on 37d03d Records.

After an assured vocal feature on The National’s ‘Where Is Her Head’ last year, Eve Owen garnered more attention with the release of the lovely ‘So Still For You’ in January this year.

Although these are very early days for London-based songwriter Eve Owen, she’s already making quite the impression. With just a handful of singles shared so far, Eve has already played a number of well-received headline shows, as well as supporting the likes of Hayden Thorpe, and was, prior to recent events, set to head out supporting The National. Eve’s links to The National run deeper than just a support slot though, her debut album, Don’t Let The Ink Dry, was recorded with the band’s guitarist, Aaron Desner, in New York, and she even helped with the recording of Where Is Her Head, from their I Am Easy To Find record.

This week, Eve has shared the latest track from, Don’t Let The Ink Dry, the delightfully crunchy sounding, Blue Moon. The track marked something of a turning point for Eve’s recorded output, as it was the first time she’d ever sang with electric guitar. The rawer sounding guitar tone gives Blue Moon a certain wildness, matched in Eve’s free and spontaneous vocal, that in her own words, was an attempt, “to capture some sort of Stevie Nicks atmosphere”. It’s a testament to the songwriting here that so much is captured with just voice and guitar, as Eve channels a spirit of “unrequited love, but not the hurtful kind”. The track is a reflection on an admiration so strong, you’re happy just to be friends with that person, as Eve explains, “I think when you take it upon yourself to truly accept unrequited love and still keep it, is when you’re finally becoming stronger again”. Eve Owen may be be a young songwriter taking her first steps into the sometimes cruel musical world, listening to Blue Moon, you wouldn’t bet against her soaring to the very top.n Yesterday’s release, ‘Blue Moon’, is just as strong. Building with classical instrumentation and soaring vocals, Owen sings of a deep appreciation and devotion, formed into the image of a blue moon.

Her album, which was produced by Aaron Dessner, will be released on 37d03d Records – a collective set up by Dessner and Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon.

Freshly signed to Bon Iver and Aaron Dessner’s 37d03d label, Eve Owen introduces herself with a beautiful piano ballad offering a hopeful outlook from a position of abject loneliness. Directed by Hannah Owen for 37d03d Eve Owen is a singer-songwriter based in London. Eve’s debut single, the piano ballad “She Says” is an intimate portrait of loneliness and longing, nearly devastating in effect but infinitely softened by the warmth of Owen’s vocals, the unbreakable hope in her delivery. Eve is also known for having lent vocals to The National song “Where Is Her Head” from the band’s most recent album, I Am Easy To Find.
