World Cafe: Next With San Francisco’s Psych-soul Band The Monophonics

There is a quote on the website of our World Cafe: Next band this week, The Monophonics from the San Francisco bay area. It's from Al Bell, the legendary one-time head of Stax records, "One of the best live soul bands I have ever seen!” Actually Al only got it half right. There are many more sides to The Monophonics. They are a psychedelic soul band that draws from many genres from the 60's and 70's including psychedelic rock. Their first album Your Brain came out in 2012 and they are just about to release The Sound Of Sinning. You can download our weekly World Cafe: Next podcast at
