On this week's All Songs Considered, Bob is joined by NPR Music's Stephen Thompson, who kicks off the show with a premiere from the folk pop sibling duo Lily & Madeleine. "The Wolf Is Free" highlights the sisters' subtle harmonies. Bob follows that up with the new single from California's wild card ensemble Foxygen; "How Can You Really" floats on a lilting beat and sneaks in an understated chorus that will be lodged in your head for days to come. Next the hosts get a call from NPR Music's Ann Powers, who has recently become enamored with a young Nashville singer named Adia Victoria. Her new single (and only available recording) "Stuck In The South" was released a few weeks ago and has sent ripples through the Nashville country scene. Later in the show the hosts play "Runaway," the infectious pop-rock track from Self's new EP Super Fake Nice and a raucous number from London's Fat White Family called "Is It Raining In Your Mouth?" Stephen takes us out with up-and-coming EDM star Porter Robinson's "Divinity," featuring sweet vocals from Stars' Amy Milan and enough joyous bounce to make Stephen grin.
