On this week's All Songs Considered, we share new music from legendary producer and ambient pioneer, Daniel Lanois, and from the friends-for-life trio Nonkeen, whose new album comes in the aftermath of a "freak carousel accident." Also on the show is a shout-along emo track from Montclair, N.J.'s Pinegrove and a psych-pop track about never wanting to go outside from Morgan Delt, who recently signed with Sub Pop.

But first, we take a moment of silence for the Weeknd, who lost his microphone, and explain to our intern that not everything on the Internet is real.

Pinegrove

  • Song: Old Friends
  • from Cardinal

When Bob saw Pinegrove live last week, he couldn't get over how everyone was shouting along to every song, even the complicated twisted phrases. "Old Friends" is rock anthem for emo kids, accompanied by sweet, twangy guitar. The song chronicles seeing lovers at the Port Authority and telling friends, "when I love them."

"Old Friends" comes from Pinegrove's new album, Cardinal, which is out now on Run For Cover Records.

Morgan Delt

  • Song: I Don't Wanna See What's Happening Outside
  • from Phase Zero

With a message that Robin can get behind, "I Don't Want To See What's Happening Outside" sounds like the kind of music you'd listen to on a perfect sunny day. But Morgan Delt not only doesn't want to go outside, he can't even bear to look out his window.

Morgan Delt's debut on Sub Pop, Phase Zero, is out Aug. 26.
