    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.

    Randy Newman is a special surprise guest caller on the latest episode of Office Hours Live with Tim Heidecker. "You truly are a hero to me," Heidecker says. "You're in the Top Three. C&C Music Factory is No. 1." You can hear their conversation here. Newman's set at Newport Folk Festival's "Folk On" last Saturday was among "The 10 Best Things We Saw" there, says Rolling Stone. "Randy Newman delivered a typically powerful 19-song solo piano set ... blending his signature mix of intentionally inscrutable ambiguity, caustic satire, and gorgeously wounded romanticism."
