James Murphy, the creative mind and voice behind the electro-pop group LCD Soundsystem, is about to release what's rumored to be his last album. It may also be his best. Hear a preview cut from This Is Happening on this edition of All Songs Considered. Also on the program: the legendary "poet of the common man" Merle Haggard, the "string-metal" trio Judgement Day, the glittery pop of Radar Brothers, dance beats and sitars in Cornershop, and the Los Angeles-based Colombian music group Very Be Careful.
