NPR Music producers Sami Yenigun and Otis Hart join host Bob Boilen once again to douse listeners with another Electronic Music Edition of All Songs Considered. A lot of the names dropped in this week's program might not sound new to the show's European audience: As Yenigun notes, Brown University student and sample-manipulating whiz Nicolas Jaar continues to pack Berlin venues, yet remains relatively unknown in the U.S. Maxmillion Dunbar, a veteran of the D.C. electronic scene, is also bigger abroad.
The Brooklyn-based duo Blondes, however, is an exception on this episode. The group is rapidly gaining recognition here thanks in part to a recent nod from The New York Times' style section. On this edition of All Songs Considered, we introduce the duo's cover of German artist Harald Grosskopf's song "Synthesist." We've also got exclusive premieres from Factory Floor and Maxmillion Dunbar.
Keep up with NPR's electronic connoisseurs, Sami Yenigun and Otis Hart, on Twitter for a daily fix of non-organic jams.
