We follow up with a new track from <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/239718803/the-bots">The Bots</a>, two young brothers from L.A. whose "All I Really Want" is a two-minute sugar rush of high-powered pop-punk.<p>Later on the show we welcome NPR Music's Daoud Tyler–Ameen and Jacob Ganz to the studio to play some of their favorite new tunes.

The former singer of Screaming Trees has released a series of deep, dark solo albums that have grown progressively more expansive. So has the roster of artists with whom he's collaborated over the years, from fellow rockers like Layne Staley, Queens of the Stone Age and Greg Dulli to folk-minded singers like Isobel Campbell and Duke Garwood, not to mention electronic composers Moby, The Soulsavers, U.N.K.L.E., Massive Attack and too many others to list.

Marisa Anderson: Tiny Desk Concert http://wnku.org/post/marisa-anderson-tiny-desk-concert <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/243191229/marisa-anderson">Marisa Anderson</a> knows where American guitar music has been and where it is now, and probably possesses an inkling of where it can go. She's studied the history and musical nuance of blues, country and folk music through and through, and ingests it all in a style that's as raw as it true.

Best known as the lead singer of The Distillers and Spinnerette, Dalle has a sandpaper- and velvet-tinged voice that speaks to rebellious young punks who are curious about the world yet vulnerable to its sharp edges. "I've never understood why there was such a fuss about aggressive women in music," Dalle says. "To me, aggression is a human instinct. ... I've felt provoked for most of my life, especially as a child.
