Clockwise from upper left: Kyp Malone, Diane Cluck, Sharon Van Etten, Group Doueh
Kyp Malone is best known as the guitarist and singer for TV On The Radio. But this fall, he released his debut solo album under the name Rain Machine. Rain Machine's eponymous record sounds an awful lot like the work of TV On The Radio, but the songs are a lot quieter and relatively spare. On this edition of All Songs Considered Malone sits in as guest DJ to talk about his Rain Machine project, and to share some of his favorite music by other artists.
