This week on All Songs Considered: Bob Boilen drops a party-rap track direct from Canada; Robin Hilton explains what he loves so much about Thomas Patrick Maguire, the songwriter he recently named his favorite new artist; and a surprise guest busts up the proceedings with some good old-fashioned California punk. Plus: pulsing, atmospheric tracks from Young Magic and Lucius, and the original voices of Liz Green and Sea of Bees.
