here's been a lot of speculation on the Internet in recent weeks about a new batch of songs from Radiohead. While the band hasn't released the EP fans were hoping for, it has put out two new singles. We've got the latest, called "These Are My Twisted Words." Also on this edition of All Songs Considered, early previews of some of the albums we're most looking forward to coming out this fall, including new music from Atlas Sound, Lou Barlow of Dionsaur Jr. and Sebadoh, Norwegian singer-guitarist Sondre Lerche and Circulatory System.
