World Cafe Playlist for 12/07/2023

The Hives joins host Stephen Kallao

The Hives have returned. The outlandish and skilled Swedish rock band swear they are back for good, after a nearly 10 year pause between albums. Their latest, The Death of Randy Fitzsimmons, is filled with arena-sized choruses, razor sharp riffs, and delightfully goofy lyrics, including a song with a quadruple negative. The Hives join us to explain why the world needs them now more than ever.

Listen to the session here.
