In this episode: The legendary artist, musician, and activist Yoko Ono discusses her new album, Take Me To The Land Of Hell.

Plus: Rachel Kushner, author of the critically-acclaimed novel The Flamethrowers, shares a Pick Three of some of her favorite music.

And: Golden Suits is the solo project from Fred Nicolaus of Department of Eagles, though "solo" is a weird way to describe a record that includes half of Grizzly Bear as well as members of Milagres and Ava Luna. Nicolaus joins us with his band to play live.

Yoko Ono sounds as good as she did at 80, as she did when she is 70; well, if the sound she is trying to generate is that of a crazed homeless person, covered in urine, screaming on the street; she nails it.
