New Music: Baths, Jim Jarmusch, Sam Phillips, More : All Songs Considered If the experimental, idiosyncratic filmmaker Jim Jarmusch formed a band, what kind of music would it play? On this week's show you can hear the answer with a new song and EP from the group Jarmusch calls SQÜRL. Plus some remarkable new electronic music from Baths, Sam Phillips and more.

We kick this week's show off with a lot of noise from filmmaker (and past guest DJ on All Songs Considered) Jim Jarmusch and his gloriously gritty side project called SQÜRL. The band, with Carter Logan and producer/engineer Shane Stoneback, originally formed to score the 2009 Jarmusch film The Limits Of Control. SQÜRL has a new, self-titled EP coming out this month and we've got a preview cut called "Pink Dust."

Also on the show: Remarkable new electronic music from Baths; the atmospheric English pop trio Daughter; beautiful, ramshackle pop from singer Sam Phillips; power punk and a healthy dose of humor from The Front Bottoms and the melodic and transfixing rock of Lemuria.
