The Dead Weather is a super-group of sorts with members from several well-loved bands, including The White Stripes, Queens of the Stone Age and The Kills. The group's new CD isn't out until June, but we've got an early single on this edition of All Songs Considered. Also on the show: the raucous duo Japandroids, singer-songwriter Vienna Teng, St. Vincent, lo-fi pioneer Bill Callahan, and an acoustic version of "Creep" from a new deluxe edition of Radiohead's Pablo Honey.
