All Songs Considered
All Songs Considered is NPR's guide to discovering new music below the radar. Every week, host Bob Boilen and producer Robin Hilton go through hundreds of new CDs to find sneak previews of music that's worth getting excited about, whether it's the latest Swedish pop band, a hip hop artist going ambient, or a singer-songwriter with a twisted new take on love. Sometimes, artists or critics stop by All Songs Considered with their top picks. It's the perfect show for listeners who love to stay current, but can't always wade through a myriad of sources.
All Songs Considered started as a Web show in 2000 after receiving countless letters from listeners who wanted to know more about the music played between stories on NPR's evening news program, All Things Considered. Now All Songs Considered has become a destination for artists such as Bjork or T. Bone Burnett to spin their favorite tunes, or musicians such as Wilco, St. Vincent, Wild Flag or Bon Iver to webcast their live concerts. It is a show that one week can feature the music of Portugal and the next feature The Black Keys or Andrew Bird.
