I've got a thrilling bunch of new artists on this week's All Songs Considered, and at the top of my list are two Los Angeles musicians; the first is mehro, a young singer whose high, soaring voice is reminiscent of Jeff Buckley. Then there's Buzzy Lee, another artist with a wide-ranging voice and a record she made with producer/composer Nicolas Jaar.

NPR Music's Lyndsey McKenna joins me to share the music of Johanna Samuels, a singer who's got a video that features Erin Rae and Courtney Marie Andrews. And speaking of videos, the funny-sad tale of Tōth's attempt to honor his aunt by playing trumpet at her funeral comes to a crashing, poignant end with the song "Turnaround (Cocaine Song)." We also have music from the Chicago-based — and friends from college — Moontype.

I end this week's show with music from Tune-Yards and their fifth album that finds singer Merrill Garbus feeling betrayed by her parent's generation and wondering how the current generation is betraying its own future.
