George Harrison’s Son, Dhani And Thenewno2, Rapper El-P, Lawrence Arabia, More

In 12 years of recording All Songs Considered, co-host Robin Hilton has never seen Bob Boilen boogie in the studio quite like he did while making this week's show. Listen and you'll hear why. We also find out which song Sean Rowe's "Horses" reminded Bob of on our summer music preview.

After a month of guest DJs, previews and other special shows, Bob and Robin are back with a good ol' fashioned mix of picks for this week's essential listening. Hear a new song from New Zealand's Lawrence Arabia and a cut from Robin's favorite new discovery, the French-Finnish duo, The Dø. Plus, an entrancing track by George Harrison's son Dhani Harrison and his band Thenewno2, and some melodic slide guitar in a new cut from the band Delicate Steve.

Finally, Bob and Robin discuss some of the surprises in the ongoing summer search for The Albums Everyone Can Love, and make confident predictions about how this week's poll will turn out.
