Heartfelt, nostalgic, and gorgeously textured, four-piece group The Fling is making a name for itself in the indie rock world. Based in Long Beach, Calif., the quartet is comprised of brothers Dustin and Graham Lovelis, Justin Roeland and Justin Ivey. After self-releasing an EP, 7" and album, the group signed with California-based label Dangerbird Records in 2010. Having just completed a national tour opening for Delta Spirit, its debut full-length, When The Madhouses Appear, was re-released by Dangerbird on May 3.

Things are happening quickly for The Fling, and for good reason. The Lovelis brothers harmonize poignant lyrics over memorable melodies. Hear two tracks from When The Madhouses Appear on this edition of "World Cafe: Next."
