What's that noise? Do you hear it? It sounds like maybe a spoon in a garbage disposal. Oh, wait, it's just NPR Music producer Lars Gotrich playing death metal through his headphones again. On this edition of All Songs Considered, Gotrich sits down with host Bob Boilen and talks about some of the artists he thinks have been noticeably absent from the show this year — some hard and loud, some ethereal and restrained. Hear music from Harvey Milk, Sebmo, Extra Life, Jacaszek and more.
