On this week's All Songs Considered, hosts Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton explore some warped musical territory with a little help from one of our friends: producer and musician John Congleton. John turns us on to the deliberate, unrelenting music of Montreal's Suuns, a record he was excited to produce.Also on the show: Bob can't stop listening to the dark humor of teenage psych-pop duo Let's Eat Grandma, Robin takes us into the fractured world of Autolux and changes things up with the tranquil Zen of Mutual Benefit and closes the show with the searching, deconstructive music of Adult Jazz.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
