It's hard not to use the word "effervescent" when describing the jazzy pop music of The Bird And The Bee. The duo of singer Inara George and producer Greg Kurstin started working together in 2006, and since then Kurstin has worked with the likes of Sia and Lily Allen, while George has begun singing with The Living Sisters.

The Bird And The Bee's last album, released five years ago, was a tribute album to Hall & Oates. Now, the duo has a new collection of original material called Recreational Love. Here, George and Kurstin join World Cafe from Capitol Studios in their hometown of Los Angeles.
