On this edition of All Songs Considered, we've got two bands from Sweden that make gorgeous, otherworldly music: The duo known as jj has a warm and wistful new CD called No. 3, featuring the seductive voice of Elin Kastlander, while the band Fredrik has a mesmerizing new concept album called Trilogi. We're featuring selections from both on the program, along with new music from The Besnard Lakes, Surfer Blood, Midlake, singer-songwriter Josiah Wolf and a group called The Hotrats covering a classic from Pink Floyd.
