World Cafe Next: Promised Land Sound
NPR Music's Ann Powers turned World Cafe on to the Nashville band Promised Land Sound last year, just in time for the Americana Music Festival. At that time, the trio could have been labeled country-rock, but on its new album, For Use And Delight, it leans more toward the "rock" side of the equation. In the past, the group's music has referenced Gram Parsons; now, you can also hear the influence of British psychedelic band The Pretty Things.
For Use And Delight comes out Oct. 2. You can download the World Cafe: Next podcast at the show's Tumblr.
