On this week's All Songs Considered: funny concert memories, one album with a wacky cover and a surprisingly great sound, a bittersweet goodbye and (of course) lots of new music.

Listen to Django Django's refreshing mix of sounds, the moody melodies of Ormonde, David Byrne and St. Vincent's horn-based collaboration, Bob's favorite jazz record of the year (by Neneh Cherry & The Thing) and more.

Plus, Mike Katzif joins this week's show to play his pick, the vibrant and provocative "Fineshrine" by Purity Ring. Mike came to NPR as an intern for All Songs Considered, and over the last seven years has had a hand in our Tiny Desk Concerts, the Alt.Latino podcast and much of our festival coverage, along with the Pop Culture Happy Hour podcast. Now Mike's is leaving us for a new job at WNYC.

You can hear the entire discussion above, or listen to each song played below.
