On this edition of All Songs Considered, a strange mishap turns Robin Hilton into a robot ... and he/it is programmed to talk about how great a time the All Songs Considered crew had at our fantastic fun. concert. Hiltonbot 2.0 is good and all, but it could never take the place of flesh-and-blood, music-loving nerdery, so the show includes picks from the apparently-human NPR Music editor Jacob Ganz and All Songs Considered intern Dan Raby.

On the show: Patti Smith's first album in eight years, which includes a collaboration with Tom Verlaine on the song "April Fool"; a nostalgic garage-pop offering from Best Coast; Austin's Deep Time (formerly YellowFever) makes a pop song that surprises; a tropical-infused, electronic song from Hundred Waters and the Debo Band, which Bob fell in love with at globalFEST this year, unveils the first single off its Sub Pop debut.
