This Week's Best Shows and a Spotify Playlist of the Bands
Swedish folk singer Jos Gonzlez is premiering new arrangements of his music with chamber ensemble yMusic during an free outdoor concert at Lincoln Center's Damrosh Park Bandshell at 7:30 p.m. The classical sextet has also collaborated The National, St. Vincent and Dirty Projectors.

The Leeds Band To Watch Adult Jazz specialize in a way-out art-pop sprawl, like Dirty Projectors if they were even less tethered to earth, or like Talk Talk if they'd spent some time on the warehouse weird-pop DIY circuit.

The solo work of Dirty Projectors bassist Nat Baldwin is gorgeously understated and subtle, showing how strangely ethereal an acoustic upright can sound in the right hands.
Glass Ghost releasing 'LYFE' (stream a track), performing at Sound + Vision Fest at Lincoln Center
Glass Ghost , whose lineup includes vocalist/producer Eliot Krimsky , are set to release a new album, LYFE , on September 16 via Western Vinyl.
Something In The Waters
A great album tells a story. Whether it's a tale told literally or a purely emotional ride, a narrative thread can make a record feel like vastly more than the sum of its singles.
