On this week's All Songs Considered, Robin starts the show with a question: What bands have you discovered and fallen in love with from commercials? His first pick, Chairlift, has come a long way since its 2008 ad for the Apple iPod Nano. Bob's first pick, Stolen Jars, is one of his CMJ 2015 favorites and has also been featured in an Apple ad. Share your picks in the comments.

Also on the show: Bob shares some of the other CMJ acts he loved this year, like the childlike Weaves and the engrossing Bayonne. Bronze Radio Return, one of Robin's SXSW picks from 2013, is back, bringing big, buoyant pop. And Beach House returns quickly, with Thank Your Lucky Stars arriving just two months after its last album, Depression Cherry.

Chairlift

"Ch-Ching!"

From 'Moth'

The Brooklyn duo Chairlift may have started as a project meant to make music for haunted houses, but the danceable, fun "Ch-Ching" from 2016's Moth is anything but spooky. The band has a bigger, more confident sound than ever before.

"Wreaths Rakes"

From 'Kept'

Stolen Jars was one of Bob's favorite discoveries from the CMJ Music Marathon this year. "Wreaths Rakes" is full of hand claps, galloping percussion and staccato guitar licks that build on themselves to create a lush, lively tune.

"Elegy To The Void"

From 'Thank Your Lucky Stars'

Beach House invites listeners to stare into the abyss and realize it's not so bad. "Elegy To The Void" from Thank Your Lucky Stars, the band's second album in two months, is engulfing, ethereal and entrancing — as all voids should be.
