This week on All Songs Considered: Our favorite electronic artist, Dan Deacon, is back with another playfully infectious dance party, one he recorded on the road during his most recent tour. Also, NPR Music contributor Katie Presley joins us with a hypnotic groove from the Seattle-based duo THEESatisfaction and a slow-burning jam from New Orleans singer-songwriter Kristin Diable. We've got a funktacular space-jam from the London-based duo Public Service Broadcasting; the unbelievable throat-singing of Canadian, Polaris Prize-winning singer Tanya Tagaq and woozy, blown-out guitar psychedelia from Jackson Scott.But before we get to any of that, Robin shares a special moment with the one artist who makes him feel so very alive and ready to conquer the world: Billy Joel.
