The original version of the track premiered on Pitchfork and is featured on the group’s debut album Beautiful Mechanical (out now on New Amsterdam Records), which also includes works by Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond), Son Lux, and more. yMusic perform on Dirty Projectors’ Swing Lo Magellan, My Brightest Diamond’s All Things Will Unwind, and a forthcoming record of compositions by Arcade Fire’s Richard Reed Parry. Its members also perform/tour with Bon Iver, Antony and The Johnsons, Ra Ra Riot, The National and more.

This Friday, yMusic will hit the stage first with a 45-minute set, including the world premiere of Nico Muhly’s “Balance Problems,” before joining the Dirty Projectors for select songs during the band’s career-spanning performance. It’s also recently been revealed that the groups will be joined by a very special unannounced guest.

“yMusic are part of a resourceful, engaged cluster of young classical musicians who are furiously networking a full-blown scene into existence. Collectively, they represent the movement’s best qualities: broad-minded, ambitious, eagerly collaborative.” – Pitchfork

“The group has set the bar high.” – The New York Times
