New Music From The Polyphonic Spree, Jon Hopkins, Eleanor Friedberger, More
Originally published on Tue May 7, 2013 1:33 pm
This week, All Songs Considered goes big with massive, heart-thumping new music from the gloriously exuberant, sprawling pop group The Polyphonic Spree, and the brilliantly experimental folk-rock band Akron Family. We also check out a gritty album from a Swedish group known as Goat, whose music is part prog-rock, part Afro-pop and undeniably awesome.
Also on the show: New solo music from Eleanor Friedberger, formerly half of the duo Fiery Furnaces and electronic music genius Jon Hopkins. Plus, the deep-bass grooves of Until The Ribbon Breaks, a band with a song inspired by the surreal imagery of David Lynch's 1997 film Lost Highway.
