October 26, 2010 On Cloak and Cipher's standout title track, Land of Talk fuses punky garage-rock guitar riffs, a plonky bass groove and ramshackle beats with Elizabeth Powell's charming, willowy voice.

September 28, 2010 More than 40 years after he founded Pink Floyd, Syd Barrett remains one of rock music's most curious and inspiring figures. On this edition of All Songs Considered we've got a cut from a new collection of some of Barrett's best work. Also on the show: The jazz-flavored rock of Bee Vs. Moth and other worldly sounds of Sea of Bees, plus new music from Swans, the Mary Halvorson Quintet, and the lush, hypnotic world of Land Of Talk.

September 15, 2008 The hypnotic Canadian rock trio Land of Talk is about to release its debut full-length CD; we've got a sneak preview. For some, the first recordings of Creedence Clearwater Revival were flat, but newly-mixed versions of the albums let fans hear the band's music in rich fidelity. Hear "Born On A Bayou," from the reissued Bayou Country. Jesus H Christ and the Four Hornsmen of the Apocalypse make music that's irreverent to some, but hilarious to others. The band's new CD is Happier Than You. Also on the show: new music from Jesse Sykes, Ray LaMontagne and the remarkable mandolin playing of India's U. Shrinivas.
