For more than 15 years, the Canadian pop-rock band Barenaked Ladies has spread its wry, playful pop sound across North America and beyond, in the process attracting a devoted fan base, releasing seven studio albums, selling out tours and even launching an independent record label. The band performed live from WXPN and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia on Sept. 15.

Shortly after the independent release of its 1991 demo, word spread of Barenaked Ladies' entertaining live shows, witty banter and impeccably crafted pop songs. Not long afterward, the group's debut album Gordon became a huge hit at home. By the end of the decade, Stunt — and its ubiquitous single, "One Week" — had sold millions in the U.S., making the band a household name and worldwide touring juggernaut. Now, it returns with Barenaked Ladies Are Me, the inaugural release on the group's own Desperation label. Employing Barenaked Ladies' trademark mixture of winsomeness and wit, the sweetly catchy disc finds the band continuing to mature and develop.
