Several months ago, I was thrilled to interview hypertalented musicians Bryce Dessner, also of The National, and David Harrington of Kronos Quartet about Aheym, a stunning LP of four of Bryce's compositions performed by Kronos.

(I'm off camera because Bryce and David's answers are far more interesting than my questions.)
