  • "Phantasmagoria in Two"
  • "Spain"

The husband and wife folk duo Arborea has been making music since 2005 and finally seem poised to break out. Shanti and Buck Curran live in the western mountains of Maine and are already names in psychedelic music circles. The recently released Red Planet, the band's fourth LP, will likely expand on that audience.

Hear two cuts from the album on this edition of "World Cafe: Next."
