If you only listen to one track on this edition of All Songs Considered, make it "Charlie Darwin" from The Low Anthem's new CD Oh My God, Charlie Darwin. The trio from Rhode Island makes Americana-inspired songs that are beautifully delicate, with an edge. Also on the program: The San Francisco-based folk-rock quartet The Dry Spells; the love, loss and redemption of singer Diana Jones; Malaysian artist Zee Avi; a new Danger Mouse-produced album from The Shortwave Set; a remastered classic from the power pop group Big Star; and the psychedelic sounds of Hopewell.
