You could use indentation in the widget:

Songs that are [either|...]     [Add condition]
	[rated|...] [over|...] [3]
	or [by|...] [morcheeba] ("contains" can be the default)
	or [both|...]            [add condition]
		[by|...] [jay jay johanson]
		and [not|...] [named|...] [on the radio]

Or you could just accept a natural syntax (and i18n it):
rated over 3 OR by Morcheeba OR (by jay jay johanson AND NOT named on
the radio)
With an example it would be easy to understand, and faster than a UI.
