Quirky, Percussive, Witty South London Three-Piece Beaty Hearts are our World Cafe: Next

June 6, 2014 - Today the three piece band from South London called Beaty Heart are our World Cafe: Next artist. This is quirky, irreverent, percussive and even complicated rock. Most of all there is a lot of fun in the tropical vibe you might hear today. It is catchy as hell and reminds us a wee bit of Vampire Weekend. As usual we will play you 2 songs that you can download in our World Cafe: Next podcast.
