Samantha Crain rose above a string of misfortune to release a celebrated album in 2020, called A Small Death – and is back this year with a fabulous new EP, I Guess We Live Here Now.
Michelle Zauner of Japanese Breakfast performs for a live virtual audience and talks to World Cafe about everything from her recent memoir, to the change in sound on her latest album, Jubilee.
