Today's episode of World Cafe revisits the singer-songwriter movement of the 1970s, chronicling some of the decade's most masterful and indelible artists.

In a 2008 interview, the contemplative and politically minded Jackson Browne discusses his love songs, his reaction to the use of "Running on Empty" in a John McCain campaign ad and his beliefs surrounding the battle between nuclear and alternative power sources.

New Multitudes On World Cafe

Often, an artist can be defined by his or her influences. Woody Guthrie's legacy demands instead that he be remembered for the legendary writers he influenced. Guthrie's music inspired musicians from Bob Dylan to Bruce Springsteen, and his career as a Dust Bowl troubadour became representative of more than just American folk music.

Jason Halstead

John K. Samson, known for his eloquent lyrics and tenure as the frontman of Canadian indie-rock band The Weakerthans, just released his first solo album. Three years in the making, Provincial arose out of Samson's stated wish to capture the feel — a "musical map" — of three locations in his native Winnipeg.

Robert Glasper Experiment On World Cafe

Robert Glasper Experiment fuses hip-hop, blues, soul and rock with jazz music.
Mike Schreiber

Though Robert Glasper Experiment is a fairly new entity, Glasper himself has been experimenting in genre mash-ups for his entire musical career. First and foremost a jazz pianist, Glasper grew to love hip-hop and began to incorporate it into his music. He's played in a jazz trio and toured the world playing at jazz festivals, but recently, he's become renowned for his ability to mix unlikely elements into something startlingly original — even if he's covering the work of another artist.

Originally published on Mon May 5, 2014 4:03 pm

Today's Vintage Cafe features Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan, who record under the name The Milk Carton Kids. The two made a wise choice in 2008 to join forces and give away their music for free — a bold move in any era.

This interview originally ran in 2013 around the release of their third album, The Ash & Clay. In this interview, they talk about their time together as a band and their new coming-of-age songs — particularly a gorgeous tune about Memphis. The duo's spring tour of the U.S. is already sold out through June 1.

Archie Powell And The Exports On 'World Cafe: Next'

Carolina M. Rodriguez

Originally published on Mon March 26, 2012 3:32 pm

With simple melodies and sardonic lyrics, Archie Powell and the Exports' new album, Great Ideas in Action, may well be the soundtrack to this summer. The group released its first EP (Loose Change) in 2009, and its debut album, Skip Work, followed a year later. Skip Work was praised for its addictive hooks, lyrical wit and sophistication. Buried beneath catchy, raucous rock 'n' roll, the album's emotional content reflected the nervous energy and anxiety that the band members say they felt graduating college.
