Music For The Painfully Alone And The Funniest Rock 'N' Roll Around34:52


All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen returns from a two-week break with new musical discoveries. Hear the cinematic songs of Patrick Watson, an artist who mashes together everything from bicycle sounds to cartoon samples. Also on the program: The gorgeous, contemplative songs of Christopher Tignor, MGMT's musical soulmate Suckers, the irrepressible energy of Akron/Family, music from lonely Casiotone, and the London-based, sharp-witted rock group Art Brut.
