Artist Profile: Chris Thile

Chris Thile, of veteran group Nickel Creek, can be an enigma to the casual listener. His genre (that beautiful oddity known as progressive folk), his instrument (mandolin, but also, well, everything), and his day job (presenting the much-loved Prairie Home Companion) all conspire to suggest a man in his mid-50s.

You Might Have Missed: St. Vincent, ‘MASSEDUCTION’

Fans of off-kilter, no-bullshit pop had a huge month in October, which saw the release of St. Vincent’s chart-topping album MASSEDUCTION.
