On this edition of All Songs Considered, Bob Boilen talks with Robin Hilton and Stephen Thompson about some of the albums they're most heavily anticipating this fall.
Autumn brings the year's last big push of new music releases, so we're now getting some of the most anticipated albums for all of 2010. Sufjan Stevens is back with his first collection of new songs in five years, while Deerhunter has a stunning follow-up to its hugely popular 2008 release Microcastle/Weird Era Cont. The chamber-pop darlings in Belle and Sebastian are also back with a beautiful and playful new record, while Antony and the Johnsons' members serve up some of the band's most unexpectedly uplifting music on a new record called Swanlights. Hear sneak previews of those records and more on this edition of All Songs Considered, as host Bob Boilen chats with producer Robin Hilton and NPR Music editor Stephen Thompson about some of the albums they're most anticipating this fall.
