World Cafe Playlist for 01/06/2020

Whitney joins host Stephen Kallao

Chicago indie duo Whitney’s sophomore album is called Forever Turned Around, and unlike their debut which was a breakup album, this is a commitment record. They’ll talk about why lyrical authenticity led them to that decision, plus they’ll discuss their aversion to musical trends, such as synths, and they’ll perform live.
