On this edition of All Songs Considered: a surprise drop from Big Thief, one they recorded during their Two Hands sessions. I also have a conversation with The Decemberists' Chris Funk about his surprising solo work, an instrumental sonic adventure called "Knifey Vellocet."

Serpentwithfeet has a voice that steals the show this week, with a mystical soulful tune; And some of the moments I love the most on this episode come from artists I hadn't known: Samia is an singer with a voice reminiscent of Phoebe Bridgers; Pezzattino has been putting out music for more than a dozen years and, after a long pause, is back with music that delights. I also play a band from Philadelphia that seems to have its heart in the traditions of British and Irish folk music from the late 1960s, followed by this remarkable, transcendent pedal steel performance from Luke Schneider.
