This week on All Songs Considered: Hosts Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton talk about some of their favorite shows from the recent Sasquatch music festival, including a particularly memorable set from Wilco. It was just one of several dozen performances from the four-day live concert extravaganza held over the Memorial Day weekend in eastern Washington state.

Also on the this week's show, we hear some great new discoveries: neo-psychedelia from Other Lives, electro-folk from Motopony, a swirly dreamscape from BOBBY, heartbreaking melodies from Sam Phillips, and fuzzy noise-pop from JEFF the Brotherhood.

Check out our Sasquatch page for tons more archived concerts and photos from this year's festival. We've got The Decemberists, Foo Fighters, Death Cab For Cutie and more.
