This week's World Cafe: Next entry is a San Diego psych-rock band started by friends Andy Breihan and John Fredericks. After relocating to Brooklyn, the pair and drummer Chris Tromley recorded their debut within sight of the ocean on Long Island, just to maintain the surf-friendly San Diego vibe.

As for the name SACCO, that's a shout-out to the famous Italian anarchists Sacco and Vanzetti, who were executed in 1927. Hear and download two of the band's songs as part of the World Cafe: Next podcast.
