Free Yourself Up

Here is who to listen for this week on World Cafe with host Talia Schlanger: 

Monday, May 14th – Caroline Rose 
 

Caroline Rose's new album is a dramatic departure from the alt-country sound of her first two albums. On Loner, her razor-sharp wit and smart lyrics tackle subjects like single motherhood to fighting the patriarchy. We'll discuss that, her sonic evolution, and ambitions as a producer.   

Tuesday, May 15th – Lindi Ortega 
 

Lake Street Dive "Free Yourself Up" - CD of the week

May 4, 2018

The title of the Brooklyn-out of Boston based quartet is certainly appropriate.  Lake Street Dive have freed themselves by self-producing this release. After working with super producer Dave Cobb on the last project, "Side Pony", the band decided to go at this one from within. "We were at the helm of every decision being made," says bassist Bridget Kearney,"I think it led to a record that we're all really happy with because it sounds the way we wanted it to sound." Ten new songs to give us all a chance to escape the unending news cycle.
