May 2, 2010 The sophomore album from Jack White's supergroup is no sterile product of endless studio tinkering: At 35 minutes, it's a blistering and compact slab of thunderous, bluesy hard rock. Born out of aggression more than invention, it's an appropriately barbed and consistently sturdy addition to White's rapidly expanding canon. Hear Sea of Cowards in its entirety for the week leading up to its May 11 release.

July 2, 2009 Twitter, as we've seen in the protests in Iran, is becoming something of a force for democracy. It's proving useful not only for organizing street demonstrations but also for bringing down the walls around that most rarefied of communities: the world of music reviews.

April 20, 2009 The Dead Weather is a super-group of sorts with members from several well-loved bands, including The White Stripes, Queens of the Stone Age and The Kills. The group's new CD isn't out until June, but we've got an early single on this edition of All Songs Considered. Also on the show: the raucous duo Japandroids, singer-songwriter Vienna Teng, St. Vincent, lo-fi pioneer Bill Callahan, and an acoustic version of "Creep" from a new deluxe edition of Radiohead's Pablo Honey.
