On this week's All Songs Considered, hosts Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton kick off the show with back-to-back premieres from upcoming albums by beloved bands. Robin leads with a frenetic new song by Deerhoof, originally written for the HBO series Vinyl, that will appear on its album The Magic, out June 24. Bob follows with "Ozzie," a song The Low Anthem wrote as a tribute to legendary shortstop Ozzie Smith that will be on its new album Eyeland, out June 17.

Also on the show: Robin shares The Avett Brothers' new track "Ain't No Man" and The Moth & The Flame's wonderfully moody song "Young & Unafraid." Bob plays a song from the wise-beyond-his-years Jaye Bartell and closes the show with the heavy yet sweet music of Muscle and Marrow.

The Low Anthem

  • Song: Ozzie
  • from Eyeland

"Rock" is not usually a term that describes the quiet, mysterious sounds of The Low Anthem, but the group dips into this territory on its new record Eyeland. The song "Ozzie," a tribute by founding member Jeff Prystowsky to the great shortstop Ozzie Smith. This inspired tune is the result of an afternoon of tape manipulation and fun with audio collaging.

Eyeland is out June 17 on Washington Square Music.
