Set List

  • "The Problem With Your Daughter"
  • "Mighty"

A wave of tropical pop is sweeping the indie underground. Bands like Vampire Weekend and Tanlines, among many others, have focused on the energetic rhythms of island life. Lord Huron, on the other hand, go the abstract route. The band's lush harmonies are backed by a hazy whirlpool of polyrhythmic tropical drums and folk guitars, not unlike a sunburned Fleet Foxes.

Lord Huron leader Ben Schneider wrote his first batch of songs last year, what turned into the band's EP, Into The Sun. Another EP, Mighty, is set to come out on Nov. 2. In this edition of "World Cafe: Next," host David Dye selects a song from each album.
