Ollabelle, M. Ward, Brian Wilson

Soul of a Man

Ollabelle are inspired by rural American roots music, particularly gospel, blues and old-time country. Their debut CD breathes new life into an old sound with stunning harmonies and powerful soul.

Hiway 9

This is a collection of eight original tunes and two covers, including a version of the previously unreleased Woody Guthrie song, "Peace Call."

Vincent O'Brien

In this beautifully-crafted concept album M. Ward creates a dark, warm world of sound from the backwoods of an imaginary land.

Man With the Harmonica

The music of Ennio Morricone is heard frequently between news stories on All Things Considered. This is from a re-release of the original soundtrack to Once Upon A Time in the West.


Check out our previous feature on Lanterna from All Songs Considered episode 26, from July of 2001.

Surf's Up

"Surf's Up," available on this Beach Boys box set, was originally recorded for the unreleased LP, Smile. Now, nearly 40 years later, Brian Wilson is touring and performing songs from the album, with critics speculating the music may finally be released.
