Brooklyn Brass, A Malian Masterpiece, Cabaret Pop, More
The New York-based band Beirut travels to Mexico for its latest album: a brassy, adventurous double EP called March of Zapotec. It won't be released until the end of February, but you can hear a sneak preview here with the song, "The Shrew." Also on this edition of All Songs Considered: an ambitious debut release from the seven-piece, Nashville-based ensemble Darla Farmer; a collaboration between David Byrne and the Dirty Projectors, as part of a new album to promote AIDS awareness; a moody, gorgeous new album from Mali's Rokia Traore; new music from the seemingly tortured Antony and the Johnsons; a solo release from AC Newman of the New Pornographers; and Norwegian punk-pop singer Ida Maria.
