    Listen: Lake Street Dive Performs on NPR's "World Cafe"
    Shervin Lainez

    Lake Street Dive, currently touring the United States with music from the brand-new album Free Yourself Up, is on NPR's World Cafe. The band chats with host Talia Schalnger and performs two songs from the album—"Good Kisser" and "Musta Been Something"—as well as "Saving All My Sinning," a song from their previous Nonesuch release, Side Pony.

    "In this session, we have some serious musicians who trained at a conservatory and make carefully arranged music with tricky harmonies. Sound like a recipe for fun? It is," says Schalnger. "This is Lake Street Dive we're talking about, and if you've heard any of the original music they make, you know they take all the most fun bits of pop, soul, disco, jazz, rock and roll and stitch them together into something all their own."

    You can hear the conversation and performance here:

    To pick up a copy of Free Yourself Up, head to your local record store, iTunes, Amazon, Lake Street Dive's shop, and the Nonesuch Store, where CD and vinyl orders include a download of the complete album at checkout. You can also listen to the album on Spotify and Apple Music.
