Dreamers of the Ghetto would fit easily alongside Bruce Springsteen and John Mellencamp on the soundtrack to a big-budget '80s movie — in the part where the hero celebrates his victory, of course. It's fitting, considering that the band shares Mellencamp's Midwestern roots, hailing from Bloomington, Ind. Composed of brothers Jonathan and Luke Jones and Luke's wife Lauren, the band's family friendship shines through in the ease with which its members play off one another.
Dreamers of the Ghetto's members have teased the blog world for more than a year with their cryptically eccentric video clips, and have just released their debut, Enemy/Lover. Hear two songs from the record on today's installment of World Cafe: Next.
