This week's World Cafe: Next artist is the Swedish folk-pop duo Solander, which just released its third album, Monochromatic Memories. Songwriter and guitarist Fredrik Karlsson and keyboardist/cellist Anja Linna set off to make an album about the natural world, but life intervened and it became a collection of songs about loss, travel and more.
