On this edition of All Songs Considered, co-host and producer Robin Hilton offers host Bob Boilen $200 million to walk away from the show forever. Does Bob take the bait?

More importantly, we've got a great mix of essential new songs, including a sneak preview of the upcoming album by Atoms For Peace, which features Radiohead's Thom Yorke, producer Nigel Godrich, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea and drummer Joey Waronker. The album, due out sometime next year, doesn't have a name yet but the cut we've got is called "Default."

Also on the show: A bold, adventurous and completely surprising new record from Tilly & The Wall; sinister new rock from the New York City-based band Bad Powers; new Afro-punk-inspired electronic music from Sinkane; and an epic jam from Brooklyn's Woods.

We're also joined by Alt.Latino hosts Jasmine Garsd and Felix Contreras, who share a fantastic new electro-pop song from the Chilean group Astro.
