The Low Anthem makes Americana-inspired songs that are beautifully delicate, with an edge. Check out the band's new CD Oh My God, Charlie Darwin. Also on the program: The San Francisco-based folk-rock quartet The Dry Spells; the love, loss and redemption of singer Diana Jones; Malaysian artist Zee Avi; a new Danger Mouse-produced album from The Shortwave Set; a remastered classic from the power pop group Big Star; and the psychedelic sounds of Hopewell.
