First Watch: Simone White & Renier Zonneveld, 'Interference'

npr.org — L.A. singer-songwriter Simone White has always been drawn to darkness. Over the course of four moody albums, she's spun arresting narratives with dreamlike images that capture everything from common heartache to the loss of friends and the End Times. For her latest trip through the surreal, White joins Dutch composer, pianist and DJ Reiner Zonneveld.

Hear A Song From Violent Femmes' First Album In 15 Years

Announcing The All Songs Considered Sweet 16 Birthday Bash

npr.org — When I was first offered the job of producing All Songs Considered not long after it started in 2000, NPR couldn't guarantee me the show would be around for more than a year. After all, it was an experiment: an Internet-only, streaming music show in an era when most people were still on dial-up connections that couldn't handle much more on a page than text and photos.

iTunes tells me it will take 5 days and 11 hrs of straight listening to get through the songs in my “to hear” playlist. Sigh...
