World Cafe http://wrur.org en Lost In The Trees On World Cafe http://wrur.org/post/lost-trees-world-cafe We have a wonderful performance from <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/129383450/lost-in-the-trees" target="_blank">Lost In The Trees</a> today with music from their new album <em>Past Life</em>. The band is from Chapel Hill, N.C., and is lead by the charismatic Ari Picker.<p>Their new album is quite different from their more orchestral folk-pop. It is stripped down, relies on more electronic elements and represents a major evolution for the band. One thing that remains the same is Picker's intensity. We're happy to welcome them back. <div class="fullattribution">Copyright 2014 WXPN-FM.

After relocating to Brooklyn, the pair and drummer Chris Tromley recorded their debut within sight of the ocean on Long Island, just to maintain the surf-friendly San Diego vibe.<p>As for the name SACCO, that's a shout-out to the famous Italian anarchists Sacco and Vanzetti, who were executed in 1927. Hear and download two of the band's songs as part of the <em>World Cafe: Next</em> podcast. <div class="fullattribution">Copyright 2014 WXPN-FM.

Barnett performs that song and more in this live session.

It's been three years since Kaiser Chiefs' last album, and since that time original drummer Nick Hodgson was replaced by Vijay Mistry.<p>The band's new album is titled <em>Education, Education, Education, and War</em>, which paraphrases a quote from Tony Blair. Here, the re-energized band joins <em>World Cafe</em> live in the studio. <div class="fullattribution">Copyright 2014 WXPN-FM.
