Even though tours were cancelled and shows were put on hold, this past year has given us a ton of great new music. And today, you're gonna hear from a band that released its debut album back in May, and who I have been craving to see live. The band is called Bachelor, a collaboration between Melina Duterte of Jay Som and Ellen Kempner of Palehound. And if you're a fan of late 1980s and '90s indie alternative, you're in the right place.

Duterte and Kempner have said their debut album was inspired by The Breeders and Pixies, which you likely would have picked up on even if I didn't tell you. Bachelor's new album is called Doomin' Sun, and in this episode, they perform a mini-concert recorded live just for World Cafe. For these performances, Duterte and Kempner were joined by musician Elise Okusami to round out the band.
