Hippo Campus is a young, intricate rock band whose members are fresh out of music-conservatory high school in the Twin Cities. The band has enormous confidence in its music and live show, and has even appeared on late-night TV.

The group's debut album, The Halocline EPs, was partially produced by Low's Alan Sparhawk. In this World Cafe segment, we'll hear Hippo Campus on stage and discuss the youthful rock 'n' roll life its members lead.
