Cold War Kids On World Cafe | May 05, 2011

Click to enlarge

 

Embracing old-school blues and backwoods country rock, Cold War Kids formed in 2004. Nathan Willett (lead vocals, piano, guitar), Matt Maust (bass), Jonnie Russell (guitar, vocals, percussion) and Matt Aveiro (drums) recorded some demos in the Los Angeles area and rode a series of EPs to Internet fame.
 
This past January, Cold War Kids reclaimed the spotlight with the release of Mine is Yours, an 11-track collection that's poppier than anything in the group's discography.
 
In this edition of World Cafe, hear an interview with the band and selections from its Live Fridays concert at World Cafe Live this past March. (link)
