A Song About Sex, Redemption For A James Brown Impersonator, And A Major Heartbreaker
Originally published on Tue April 23, 2013 8:12 pm
This week on All Songs Considered, hosts Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton go on a haphazard musical journey across the globe to share their favorite new discoveries. Manchester's The 1975 start things off with the band's punchy song called "Sex." Then we head to Brooklyn for soul singer Charles Bradley, who keeps things heated with "You Put The Flame On It," a track from his upcoming album Victim Of Love. Back in Iceland, Ólöf Arnalds (not to be confused with her cousin Ólafur Arnalds) shares her beautifully sung new track "Treat Her Kindly."
Also on the show: German musician, composer and Kraftwerk alumnus Karl Bartos supplies us with an epic electronic track, before we finish things off with a hauntingly beautiful cut from London-based poet, singer, illustrator and one-to-watch Keaton Henson.
