Folk Music
Inspired by the birth of a child and a new career, Austin Lunn's triumphant, ebullient new album as Panopticon steps outside his curveball mixture of metal and American folk.
Sindri Már Sigfússon is best known for leading the folk-pop band Seabear. As a solo artist, he goes by the name Sin Fang. For this session, he appears at Iceland's Rás 2 radio to perform four songs.
On this week's <em>All Songs Considered</em>: ecstatic dance-rock from The Juan MacLean, premieres from the adventurous producer The Bug, folk-turned-experimental singer Sarah Jaffe, Sinkane and much more.
Performing as White Fence, Tim Presley steers toward the gentle pomp of late-'60s psychedelic pop, rock and folk. Along the way, he writes to the canon from which he performs and bends it to his will.
Hear three live songs by the folk-rock band, which balances catchiness with meditative darkness.
On this week's <em>All Songs Considered</em>: New music from Bon Iver, premieres from the folk duo Luluc, California garage rock band White Fence and more.
