Nickel Creek, Turtle Island String Quartet, Joy Division


When all else fails at All Things Considered, we've got the Turtle Island String Quartet to see us through. Watch to find out more.

Bird in a House

One of All Songs Considered's great unknowns, Railroad Earth has a sound reminiscent of the Grateful Dead.

The Smoothie Song

Though they've been playing together for more than a decade, the trio that make up this bluegrass trio are all in their early 20s.

Walk Through the Fire

A former philsophy student and award-winning restaurant owner, Mary Gauthier (pronounced go-shay) sings with the southern spirit of Lucinda Williams.

Losing Your Affection

The Future Bible Heroes make music modeled after what singer/songwriter Stephen Merritt calls the last great period of popular music: the '80s.

West Side Highway

Another All Songs Considered great unknown, Lanterna play moody guitar instrumentals.

Love Will Tear Us Apart

They never had a hit on the charts, they never toured the US and they only released two albums, but the Joy Division remain one of the most influential bands of the past 25 years.
