Founded in 2007 by Kelsey Kopecky and Gabe Simon, The Kopecky Family Band — which recently shortened its name to Kopecky — is known for big, brash folk-pop that's uplifting in its sweep. The group didn't release its debut album, Kids Raising Kids, until 2012, after years spent honing its crisp, polished sound.

A new follow-up, Drug For The Modern Age, adds heft and rocking intensity to the mix. On this episode of World Cafe, the band performs a few of the album's songs live in the studio.
