On the latest episode of All Songs Considered, hosts Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton take a circuitous route through this week's recommended listening, starting with two randomly paired videos from the WFMU blog, and ending with angular electronica from Squarepusher. Along the way we hear a brash tale of love, loss and the Guggenheim from The Ting Tings; a mix of soul and dubstep from The Memorials, French artist Yann Tiersen's beautiful "Monuments," and a little bit of eerie blues-rock from one of Robin's latest discoveries, Tu Fawning.

Also on the show: Last week Bob challenged listeners to guess what The Mynabirds song "Generals" reminds him of. You've been tossing and turning in your bed trying hopelessly to figure it out. This week, Bob and Robin talk with The Mynabirds singer and songwriter Laura Burhenn about the song and play a few of the listener guesses. Did anyone win a date with Bob? All answers will be revealed in this episode.
