David Dye is joined by Galactic on this episode of the World Cafe. The revered New Orleans funk band has branched out with a variety of danceable styles on their new album, Into the Deep. It also features guests like Macy Gray and Mavis Staples, and we’ll hear about those collaborations in today’s interview. Plus, Galactic plays an energetic live set in the studio. That's tonight at 8:00 p.m. on WCBE, 90.5 FM.

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!

Yo La Tengo On World Cafe

After nearly 30 years of prolific genre-avoidance, the indie-rock trio Yo La Tengo returns with Fade, its first studio album in almost four years. The record, the band's 13th full-length release, features "Before We Run," a six-minute piece of orchestral pop showcasing Yo La Tengo's stately side.
