New Mix: Dirty Projectors, Hot Chip, Japandroids And More
Originally published on Fri May 4, 2012 8:16 am
This week on All Songs Considered, Bob Boilen and Jacob Ganz go globe-hopping to find new music from familiar faces: Canada's Japandroids, with punk music that doesn't just want to punch you in the face; New York's Dirty Projectors, whose members mix familiar elements from different eras to create something new and strange; and 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 getting inspired by a set of pawn-shop drums, and tropical garage rock from the band Bayatas.
