On this week's episode of All Songs Considered, co-hosts Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton split right down the middle when it comes to bringing the noise. Bob, who normally likes his summer's fast and loud, takes a more languid approach, with beautiful cuts from Sigur Rós, Jon Hopkins and Zola Jesus. Meanwhile, Robin cranks it to 11 with some dissonant explosions of rock and roll from Drug Church, Ebony Bones and Two Inch Astronaut. Drug Church Album: Paul Walker Song: Deconstructing Snapcase Hayden Thorpe & Jon Hopkins Album: Goodbye Horses Ebony Bones Album: Behold A Pale Horse Song: I See I Say Zola Jesus Album: Versions Song: Avalanche (Slow) Two Inch Astronaut Album: Bad Brother Song: Little Short Guy Sigur Rós Album: Kveikur Song: Kveikur
