The xx, Dan Deacon, Frank Ocean And More
On this edition of All Songs Considered, hear the first new song from The xx since the group's stunning debut in 2009. " Angels" is a sensitive love song, and fantastically sparse in instrumentation, aside from a booming bass.
Also on the show: a masterfully restrained song from Frank Ocean's first full-length studio album; a premiere of the song "Counter Charm" from the Brooklyn-based duo, She Keeps Bees; euphoric electro-pop from Passion Pit; the wildly infectious artist Dan Deacon and his ecstatic new album, America;Iranian-Canadian producer Amirali; Canadian country singer Corb Lund; and singer Cate Le Bon channels Nico.
Listen to the entire discussion above and hear the individual tracks played below.
