    Listen: Chris Thile Talks 'Laysongs' with NPR's 'Here & Now'
    Josh Goleman

    Chris Thile is on the latest episode of NPR's Here & Now, from WBUR in Boston. He talks with host Robin Young about his new solo album, Laysongs—new recordings of six original songs and three covers, all of which contextualize and banter with his ideas about spirituality.

    "If I have a religion now, it's trying to keep my ears wide open to the human beings that I encounter," Thile tells Young. "I worry that we as human beings have a tendency to find people who think and act and look like we do and we pod up ... I don't think that we're ever going to change someone's mind if we're not willing to be changed."

    You can hear their conversation below and hear the album here.

    David Byrne talks with hip-hop artist Open Mike Eagle on Fuse, a podcast from Bomb magazine. "Your music has been in my life for a very long time," Eagle says. "One of my earliest musical memories, when I was like five or six years old ... I think it’s like the second song I ever remember hearing was 'Burning Down the House' ... And, you know, 'Once in a Lifetime' is literally one of my favorite songs ever. Like if I were to make an objective top ten list, that song would be on there." You can hear their conversation here.
