Free pre-release stream for Bass & Mandolin

thile_meyerNonesuch Records has made free streaming audio available prior to next week’s release of Bass & Mandolin, the aptly-named new album from Chris Thile & Edgar Meyer.

It’s a recording of this virtuoso pair’s original instrumental music, and is as free-spirited and adventurous as you might expect.

The stream is provided by Soundcheck, a radio program hosted weeknights on WNYC radio in New York. It will be available until Tuesday (9/9), when the album is available for sale.

Check the full album stream below, or listen to individuals tracks at


Pre-orders can be placed now online.
