Special Edition of the World Cafe Sunday, August 11th @ 9pm

https://www.facebook.com/Shoutoutlouds/photos_stream

Coming up this Sunday night at 9pm, David Dye is paid a visit by Swedish band Shout Out Louds on the World Cafe.  The group, started by childhood friends Adam Olenius, Ted Malmros, and Carl von Arbin in 2001, is known for its energetic, ultra-melodic brand of indie-pop. We’ll be treated to four songs off the new album, and hear about the band’s unconventional marketing ploy for their song “Blue Ice,” which allowed fans to create their own record made of ice. Tune is for this special edition of the World Cafe, Sunday, August 11th at 9pm, on 90.5 FM!

20-something singing pianist of the New Orleans virtuoso tradition, Jon Batiste has a natural entertainer's charisma and chops to match. He met his band in school at Juilliard — and can do "modern jazz" with a metropolitan attitude. And yes, there's a tuba.

Jim James, Live In Concert: Newport Folk 2013

As lead singer of My Morning Jacket, James specializes in letting his gigantic voice ring out past the rafters in songs that boom and blare. But on his first solo album, he turns inward and recasts himself as a lost wanderer in search of redemption and comfort. Hear Jim James perform as part of the 2013 Newport Folk Festival.

It's already August 8, which means you've got maybe three or four weeks left to complain about preseason football, inadequately shield yourself from the scorching heat of the sun, and communicate with your kids about something other than why they haven't done their homework. So why not get cracking on a book?
