It's hard to believe how much new and unheard music from our favorite artists has emerged in just a few days. This past week, Neutral Milk Hotel broke a decade of silence with the announcement of a new box set, packed with never-before-heard recordings from the band's mid- to late-'90s heyday. Not to be outdone, its friends in The Olivia Tremor Control also unveiled their first new song in a decade.

Meanwhile, James Blake and Bon Iver, reigning kings of warbly falsetto, released a collaborative track. You can hear all of these cuts on this week's All Songs Considered, along with new music by Tom Waits, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Lisa Hannigan, Jesse Sykes and the Sweet Hearafter, and an unbelievably gorgeous collaboration between flamenco guitarist Pedro Soler and cellist Gaspar Claus.
