This week, hosts Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton play brand new cuts from springtime releases by the well-established and widely adored bands The Black Keys and Swans. Both songs are instantly recognizable: The Black Keys for their spare, punchy, guitar-based pop, and Swans for their epic, densely layered orchestrations.Bob shares music by a New Zealand-based band called Tiny Ruins. That song's airy vocals and restrained instrumentation pair well with a pick from Robin: Dylan Shearer, who channels the folky, quiet side of Pink Floyd on a song called "Meadow Mines (Fort Polio)."Also on the program: The strangely alluring electronica of London's Metronomy; and Robin mourns the loss his beloved Jayhawks suffered over the weekend in the NCAA basketball tournament with the soothing sounds of A Winged Victory For The Sullen.Minuet For A Cheap Piano No. 1Artist: A Winged Victory for the SullenAlbum: Atomos VIIA Little God In My HandsArtist: SwansAlbum: To Be KindMeadow Mines (Fort Polio)Artist: Dylan ShearerAlbum: GaragearrayBallad of the Hanging ParcelArtist: Tiny RuinsAlbum: Brightly Painted OneBoy RacersArtist: MetronomyAlbum: Love LettersFeverArtist: The Black KeysAlbum: Turn Blue
