On this week's episode, hosts Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton are back with their latest mix, including a hard-to-find track from Thom Yorke's latest project, Atoms For Peace. The song "What The Eyeballs Did," doesn't appear on the band's upcoming album, Amok. But if you do some digging on the group's website, you'll find a hidden link to download it.

Also on the show: Bob and Robin travel back in time to hear Bryan Ferry's Roxy Music re-imagined as '20s jazz instrumentals. Seriously. No singing. Just swingin' jazz instrumentals. Plus: A hazy, country-tinged track from Night Beds; the shape-shifting sounds of Unknown Mortal Orchestra; a special premiere from the band Caveman and the crazy-catchy debut album from Ex Cops.
