Jul 29, 2014 — We saw more than 50 bands over three days during the 55th anniversary of the Newport Folk Festival in seaside Rhode Island. Here are some of the moments we'll remember.
Jul 28, 2014 — Where the strings in past Horse Feathers songs provided chamber-folk shading, here they're employed with energy, even aggression, without sacrificing the bracing beauty for which the band is known.
Jul 25, 2014 — The doom metal band sure has been busy since 2011. Hear the leadoff track from its third LP, Mobile of Angels. It's indebted to heavy blues and — surprisingly — Fairport Convention.
Jul 22, 2014 — A straightforward storyteller, Keith Latinen works in details and similes, not abstraction and metaphor. Braid's Bob Nanna sings a verse in this lilting emo song from the long-running duo.
Jul 18, 2014 — Two decades after the epic Dopesmoker was written, "The Clarity" presents Sleep at its heaviest and weediest. The band describes it as a "lyrical follow-up to a lifetime of marijuana enjoyment."
Jul 18, 2014 — From July 25 to July 27, we'll stream more than a dozen concerts from the festival's main stage.
Jul 9, 2014 — The guitarist blends the traditional and the avant-garde, fusing the sounds of John Fahey, The Grateful Dead and Will Oldham into back-porch masterpieces. Hear Gunn's earthy, epic new single.
Jul 7, 2014 — In a new song from Zach Braff's film Wish I Was Here, the reserved singer and the bombastic band find a way to fit together.
Jul 1, 2014 — On this week's All Songs Considered: New music from Bon Iver, premieres from the folk duo Luluc, California garage rock band White Fence and more.
Jun 30, 2014 — Bon Iver's Justin Vernon took one look at Wish I Was Here, the new film by Zach Braff, and was immediately inspired to write this song.
