The Dead Weather is a new super-group of sorts with members from several well-loved bands, including Jack White of The White Stripes, Dean Fertita of Queens of the Stone Age, Alison Mosshart of The Kills and Jack Lawrence of The Raconteurs. 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: new music from 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.
