World Cafe Playlist for 12/13/2023

The Last Dinner Party joins host Raina Douris

At home in the UK, The Last Dinner Party have been accused of being “an industry plant”. On the next World Cafe, the band talks about that and some of the other outrageous claims that have been tossed around about them. They also share some of the high points of the last couple of years and their relatively quick rise to success – including their first tour of the US. Plus hear rare, acoustic versions of their songs.

Listen to the session here.
