Host Bob Boilen has been on the road having way too much fun. ( CMJ Music Marathon, Moogfest, Peter Gabriel). This week, Bob's finally back in the office, and he and co-host Robin Hilton share some of their favorite records and songs of the week, including beautiful new music from Andrew Bird, a stunning music app and album from Brian Eno, a blistering rock gem from Ty Segall and more. Bob also shares tips from a new book, Supernatural Strategies For Making A Rock 'n' Roll Group, by Ian F. Svenonius, the lead singer of bands The Make-Up and Chain and the Gang. For example, "If one makes a rock 'n' roll group, one must eventually make some music. But before that, one must make a photograph of the group."

Later in the show they're joined by NPR Music producer Lars Gotrich, who shares a mind-blowing electronica cut from Holly Herndon.
