August 11th, 2008

Episode 176 of 730 episodes

Twenty Seven years ago, Brian Eno and David Byrne made a record like no other: My Life in the Bush of Ghosts. Now, nearly 30 years later, they're about to release a follow-up. We've got a sneak preview. Also on this edition of All Songs Considered: a surprising collaboration between reggae legend Lee "Scratch" Perry and Andrew W.K. Van Dyke Parks and Inara George (singer for The Bird and The Bee) team up for an unusual record of baroque-styled pop songs. We've also got new music from Earlimart, The Avett Brothers, live music from She and Him and Jim James of My Morning Jacket.
