We had this show all wrapped up last Friday. It was totally in the can! Then My Bloody Valentine dropped its highly anticipated new album over the weekend and threw our previously recorded show into total chaos! But hey, it was worth it. We (and all the other My Bloody Valentine fans out there) have been waiting more than 20 years for this! Hear a new cut from the album and tell us what you think in the comments section.

Also on this week's episode: Bob and Robin contemplate their own mortality while sharing some of the great music they've been listening to, including Youth Lagoon's upcoming release, Wondrous Bughouse; a jubilant premiere from Cloud Cult; a dreamy sample from storyteller Grouper; the gorgeous instrumentals of Malian musician Ballaké Sissoko; and a track from another much-anticipated album, courtesy of Swedish electronica giants, The Knife. Plus NPR Music's Sami Yenigun stops by to share a brand new track from "KH," otherwise known as electronica heavyweight Four Tet.
