On this edition of All Songs Considered, hosts Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton share a brand new song from Beck. The new cut, called "Gimme," is the third single he's released since June, and by far the strangest (i.e. best) of the bunch. None of the songs will be on the new full-length record Beck has in the works, which he hopes to release before the end of the year.Also on the show: Summer never ends in a shimmering, joyful new track from the Los Angeles-based duo Best Coast; Joanna Gruesome (a play on harpist and singer Joanna Newsom) delivers a burst of gritty, infectious garage rock from the Welsh group's new album, Weird Sister; singer Cate Le Bon, another artist from Wales, has a new cut with shades of Nico and The Velvet Underground; electronic artist Huerco S. morphs dance beats into alluring ambient soundscapes; and the musician known as Arp swaps the instrumental electronics from his previous two records for guitar pop.BeckAlbum: GimmeSong: GimmeplaylistBest CoastAlbum: Fade AwaySong: I Don't Know HowJoanna GruesomeAlbum: Weird SisterSong: Anti-Parent Cowboy KillersCate Le BonAlbum: Mug MuseumSong: Are You With Me Now?Huerco S.Album: Colonial PatternsSong: PrinzifArpAlbum: MoreSong: Judy Nylon
