2014 Non-COMM performer Lydia Loveless stopped by World Cafe earlier this year to talk about her Ohio roots and her new record Somewhere Else.  You can listen back to the full interview here and get a free download of “All I Know” below, as recorded for the session.

Folkadelphia stayed local this week with a session by Chelsea Sue Allen.  The singer-songwriter was joined in the studio by her sister, and the duo performed songs from the former Allen’s 2013 EP Reunion and some new tracks.  Stream and download the session below.

We’re midway through the 2014 Philadelphia Folk Festival right now, and earlier this week we posted a free download of “Brushy Mountain Conjugal Trailer” from headliners Old Crow Medicine Show‘s recent World Cafe session.  Check it out below.

Local psych quintet Needle Points made quite an impression with this week’s Key Studio Session.  The band brought candles, colorful clothes and a handful of tracks off of their debut Bom Tugangu record, as well as some newer songs.  Check out “Cripple Street” below and get the full set here.

Singer-songwriter Chuck Prophet teamed up with Noisetrade to release a six-song sampler ahead of his new record.  The compilation includes two new songs and four songs from his back catalog.  Stream and download it below.
