World Cafe Playlist for 08/16/2023

Bethany Cosentino joins host Stephen Kallao

As one half of the indie rock band Best Coast, Bethany Cosentino became famous in her early 20s – but over time, she says the tough exterior, slacker image of Best Coast didn’t feel like it fit. Now she has a new solo album called Natural Disaster – she talks about writing her most open music yet and how she has come to peace with herself.

Listen to the session here.
