April 10th, 2012

Episode 395 of 792 episodes

This week on All Songs Considered, Bob Boilen and Jacob Ganz go globe hopping to find new music from familiar faces: Canada's Japandroids makes punk music that doesn't only want to punch you in the face; New York's Dirty Projectors mix familiar elements from different eras to create some completely new music; and we hear from London's Hot Chip, those nerds who just wanna dance. Also on this episode: the return and revival of soul singer Bobby Womack, Peter Broderick's sweeping tribute to artist Colin Kenniff, singer-songwriter Sarah Jaffe gets inspired by a set of pawn-shop drums, and tropical garage rock from the band Bayatas.
