Cults' duo of Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion started making 1960s-style pop music together last year while attending New York University. When they posted a three-track demo on Bandcamp, music fans took notice: "Go Outside" was praised by Pitchfork, and after the song's viral success on blogs, Columbia Records came calling with a record contract.

This May, Cults released its self-titled debut album, a collection of 11 breezy pop songs available just in time for summer. Hear Follin and Oblivion perform songs from the record live at WXPN's World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.

Set List
  • "Abducted"
  • "The Curse"
  • "Never Heal Myself"
  • "Most Wanted"
  • "You Know What I Mean"
  • "Bumper"
  • "Go Outside"
  • "Oh My God"
